The man who killed his Mansfield police officer brother and neighbor in a rampage of gunfire the day after Christmas in 2007, will stay in the state's highest-security psychiatric hospital. 45-year-old Larry Evans was found Not Guilty by Reason of Instanity in the killings of Brian Evans and Robert Hausman. The staff at the Timothy B. Moritz Unit in Columbus had recommended Larry Evans be transferred to the less restrictive Heartland Behavioral Health in Massillon. Richland County Common Pleas Court Judge James Henson agreed, following a five-day hearing. The prosecutor's office appealed, and the Fifth District Court of Appeals has ruled Evans must stay at Moritz.   Assistant Prosecutor Chris Tunnell says Moritz is a prison-like setting with guards and barbed-wire fencing, while Heartland has only its own police force and "some locked doors", making Evans an escape risk. Tunnell says Evans has survivalist training, is well experienced with hand-to-hand combat and firearms, and is very dangerous.   Evans' hospital placement could be re-evaluated in another six months. Should the day come when his bipolar disorder improves, he would be placed in less-restrictive hospital settings, following court review.  If he should eventually be declared legally sane, he would be released, under the watchful eye of a a case manager.
