HAMILTON, OH (FOX19) - A 14-year-old boy charged with robbing and raping his 64-year-old neighbor has changed his plea.

Alexis Ramirez appeared in court Thursday and changed his plea from not guilty to not guilty by reason of insanity.

Ramirez is being tried as an adult for raping his neighbor in her Liberty Township mobile home in January, then forcing her to drive to an ATM to get money.

A competency hearing is set for June to hear results of the teen's psychological evaluation. His trial was scheduled for June 17, but that has been pushed back.
