Court told killer of six not fit for trial

ALAMEDA, Calif., Nov. 20 (UPI) -- A former nursing student accused of killing six people and injuring three others at a small California school is a paranoid schizophrenic, his lawyer said.

One Goh's attorney told Judge Thomas Reardon of Alameda County Superior Court that a court-appointed psychiatrist has determined Goh is not competent to stand trial, the San Francisco Chronicle reported Tuesday.


Goh has pleaded innocent to murder and other charges in connection with an April 2 rampage at Oikos University, a tiny Korean Christian school in Oakland.

Public Defender David Klaus said Goh, 44, has lost more than 60 pounds since he was jailed and suffers from delusions. He has refused both psychiatric care and medication.

"He's in a state of deep isolation, depression and shame," Klaus said.

Judge Reardon said Monday he will decide Goh's fate after a second psychiatrist who evaluated him turns in a report.
