Trey Burke, a Q-Anon fanatic from Seville Township, Michigan, who was charged with open murder and felony firearms in the Jan. 27, 2021 shooting death of his wife, Jessica Burke, has entered a plea of not guilty by reason of insanity, according to local news outlet The Morning Sun.
Burke, 45, shot his wife three times and confessed later the same day, telling investigators during questioning that he had a “neuro-link” implanted in his brain at a hospital in Grand Rapids, according to Gratiot County Prosecutor Keith Kushion.
“He said that other people could read his thoughts,” Kushion said.
Burke told police that he was “getting messages on his tablet device from QAnon members telling him his wife a CIA asset who was involved in a sex trafficking ring and he needed to kill her.”
“He also said that (President) Joe Biden had twins, a daughter and a son, and that the son had a sex change and that’s who his wife was.”
Burke was ordered to undergo a competency examination conducted by state forensic psychologists who found that he was not criminally responsible for his actions at the time of the murder. The result has been accepted by 29th Circuit Court Judge Shannon Schlegel, The Morning Sun reported.
