A judge has decided that a man charged with mass murder is mentally unfit to stand trial for killing seven former classmates at Oikos University in Oakland in 2012.
The Alameda County Superior Court judge ruled Thursday that One Goh, 47, suffers from schizophrenia, severe depression and a delusional disorder.
The hearing was prompted after one psychologist found that Goh is competent. However, several other clinicians, including one of UCSF's top psychiatric law experts, disagreed.
After weeks of testimony, Judge Gloria Rhynes told the courtroom today that Goh remains steeped in the same delusions that led to the killing spree.
Goh was doing well in school when he says he believes faculty started to conspire against him, handing out test answers to other students and laughing at him. He maintains his car was followed through a GPS tracker, that his landlord was spying on him through the keyhole and leaving maggots on his floor. His lawyers say paranoia led him to withdraw from school and become homeless in the months before he returned to Oikos to demand a refund, allegedly leaving friends and faculty dead.
