Psych exam ordered

A New Brunswick man accused of a violent

assault Friday will undergo a psychiatric assessment.

Corey Thomas
Goodine, 35, appeared briefly in provincial court Monday to face a Nov. 13 count
of aggravated assault, alleging an attack on a minor.

Duty counsel Joseph
FitzPatrick asked the court Monday to send Goodine for a 30-day psychiatric
assessment to determine if he’s fit to stand trial or might be exempt from
criminal responsibility for his alleged actions.

He said Goodine’s
sister, a social worker, informed him that Goodine has been diagnosed with a

chemical imbalance and takes medication for depression.

Crown prosecutor
Cameron Gunn didn’t oppose the request.

Judge Julian Dickson ordered the
assessment.

Goodine will return to court Dec. 16.

After an
incident at St. Mary’s First Nation on Friday, an arrest warrant was issued for
Goodine.

He turned himself in later that day in Perth
Andover.

Attempted Murder-Suicide on Zyban

“Now he is serving 15 yrs. in jail for the death of his little girl and the trauma that his son had to face.”

 

We have a close friend who went on Zyban nearly 2 years ago to quit smoking. He was the nicest guy you could ever know. He was unselfish – often taking in homeless people into his own home and helping them out until they were on their feet again. If a neighbor needed help – he was the first one to lend a hand.

He was also a single dad who was raising his 8 yr. old son on his own. He also had a 3 yr. old daughter by a following relationship that failed. The little girl lived with her mom.

But after going on Zyban something went terribly wrong. He felt so much anxiety about his little girl, because her mommy was a drug addict. The next thing we knew, he was all over the news on TV and in the papers.

He had taken his 2 kids camping out of town and attempted a murder-suicide, which resulted in suffocating the girl and slitting the boys throat and slitting his own wrists. The boy lived but the girl died.

He suddenly came to himself and realized what he had done and quickly drove to the nearest town to a hospital to try and save his son. All he was wearing when he arrived at the hospital was his undershorts.

He underwent psychiatric assessment before the trial and they said he was totally sane. Yet they failed to admit that the Zyban had anything to do with it.

Now he is serving 15 yrs. in jail for the death of his little girl and the trauma that his son had to face.

I feel so awful – I don’t think he should be in jail. And on top of all this – the jail will not even allow him any psychological counseling to help him deal with this tragedy.

Ironically he is still smoking!
