Taylor Bradley is being required to undergo a third mental health evaluation.

A Lincoln woman, responsible for the deaths of two maintenance workers at The Lodge Apartments in 2023, will undergo another mental health evaluation. A judge ruled that 28-year-old Taylor Bradley was not responsible for the killings of Chris Karmazin and Ronald Gonzalez by reason of insanity. The court found that Bradley may pose a danger to herself or others in the foreseeable future, leading to an order for a new evaluation and treatment plan.

Currently housed in the Lancaster County Jail, Bradley will remain there until a bed is ready at the Regional Center. After the evaluation, she will be sent back to jail with an evaluation report and treatment plan to be submitted to the court before the evaluation period ends. A hearing for Bradley is scheduled for August 23 at 11 a.m. This is her second time at the Regional Center and her third overall mental health evaluation since the deaths of Karmazin and Gonzalez. Investigations at The Lodge revealed that both men were killed by being run over by a car, and Bradley was arrested a few blocks away and charged with two counts of first-degree murder. At the time of the crime, Bradley was experiencing delusions, manic episode, and psychosis to such an extent that she did not understand the nature and consequences of her actions.

One maintenance worker survived being hit by her car but later quit his job after being injured on duty while working near The Lodge Apartments where Karmazin and Gonzalez were killed by Bradley’s car while they were doing their routine maintenance work around midnight on March 5th, 2023 near building C604 on Lincoln’s southwest side. Family members have confirmed their identities as Chris Karmazin and Ronald Gonzalez who were killed on duty during their late-night inspection at The Lodge Apartments complex in Lincoln’s downtown area where many residents live along with students from nearby universities like Nebraska Wesleyan University (NWU) which owns part of this apartment complex called ‘The Lodge.’
