Defendant in Beaverton Stabbing Spree, Long Deemed Too Mentally Ill, Will Now Face Trial

A man accused of killing a 72-year-old woman and critically injuring her daughter during the 2019 robbery of a Wells Fargo Bank in Beaverton is now competent to face trial, a judge ruled on Feb. 2, overruling evaluators at the Oregon State Hospital who say he’s still too mentally ill to assist in his own defense.
