Mercer is accused of stabbing and killing his neighbor, 46-year-old Patrick Collins, in Saratoga Springs.

Collins was taken to the hospital by his girlfriend who witnessed the attack.

Last week, Mercer was indicted on additional charges, including intimidating a witness and tampering with a witness.
