If deemed mentally fit, California college gunman set for trial: local CBS affiliate

Yahoo! National News - Tue, 09/09/2014 - 16:35
(Reuters) - A California grand jury has indicted a former nursing student with seven counts of murder in a shooting rampage at a Christian college, freeing prosecutors from having to present their case to a judge before proceeding to trial if the defendant is later declared mentally competent, a local CBS broadcaster reported. An Alameda County Superior Court judge ruled in January last year that Korean-American One Goh was mentally incompetent to stand trial. If a judge determines at a later point that Goh has regained his mental competency, he would be ordered to stand trial in the high-profile case. Broadcaster CBS cited Alameda County prosecutors in saying that charges originally brought against Goh were incorporated in the Aug. 22 indictment.
