Lostprophets Frontman Ian Watkins On 'Suicide Watch' Over Baby Rape Charges

Lostprophets frontman Ian Watkins has been placed on suicide watch five times an hour while he waits to stand trial accused of raping a baby.

A clinical psychologist has recommended the singer be moved from jail to a secure hospital before his trial begins in October.

His lawyer Sally O’Neill told a pre-trial review at Cardiff crown court: "He has been seen by a clinical psychologist and she believes he should be receiving anti-psychotic medication… She wants him to be taken to a secure hospital for assessment and treatment."

Watkins has denied 24 offenses, including two counts of raping a baby and possession of an extreme image of a person having sex with an animal.
