Kidnap case delayed for mental tests

The Cincinnati Enquirer

        BURLINGTON — The New Jersey man charged with kidnapping in the case of a man whose dead body eventually was found in a shallow grave will next appear in Boone Circuit Court on Feb. 6.

        Gregory J. Marcinski, 24, of Brick, N.J., was supposed to have had a pretrial conference in the capital kidnapping case on Tuesday, but that was pushed back to February because the court lacked a report on Mr. Marcinski's mental status.

        Mr. Marcinski still must receive a mental evaluation at Luther Luckett Correctional Complex in LaGrange. No date has been set.

        Mr. Marcinski would escape the death penalty if he is declared insane.

        He is accused of kidnapping his ex-lover's new boyfriend - Paul Jeffrey Gale, 28, of Great Britain - from a Florence hotel by posing as an FBI agent on April 17.

        Ten days later, Mr. Gale's dead body was found about two miles from Mr. Marcinski's home. He was burned beyond recognition and there were strangulation marks around his neck.
