Accused parent killer to remain at hospital

A suspect in the murder of a Center Grove area couple more than a decade ago wanted to be released from a psychiatric hospital but won’t be going anywhere soon.

Suspect Joseph McGrew had written a note to a Johnson County Superior Court judge asking to be released.

But he withdrew that request, Johnson County Prosecutor Brad Cooper said. The Indiana Division of Mental Health also told the prosecutor’s office that McGrew should remain in a psychiatric hospital for the time being, Cooper said.

Cooper said he no longer has to decide whether to refile murder charges against McGrew, who was arrested after his parents were found shot dead in their home in 1998.
