** The alleged killer of a New York EMT is set to appear back in court today. Jose Gonzalez, 25, has been charged with murder in connection with the Thursday death of Yadira Arroyo, 44. CBS New York (March 19) said publicity surrounding Gonzalez’ arrest is continuing to focus on his supposed mental illness. He was taken into custody Thursday after running down Arroyo with her own ambulance. Gonazlez’ father Jose Sr. said his son suffers from bipolar disorder for which he was unable to get help. Earlier reports had stated the condition in question was schizophrenia. Arroyo’s funeral, meanwhile, has been set for Saturday. Flags throughout New York City are currently flying at half mast in her honor.
