WEST CHESTER–The county’s chief judge has given Jeffrey Proffitt, who killed an Oxford woman last year at her home, permission to start serving his life sentence without psychiatric hospital supervision.

Defense experts testified at Proffitt’s trial, that he suffered delusional episodes at the time of the murder, including thinking Johnson and Stidoms were plotting against him with their gang affiliations and law enforcement connections.
