Denver, Colorado (KMGH) — A man accused of causing a deadly shooting at a grocery store in Boulder, Colorado, turned out to be incompetent in a murder on Friday.
In his first ability assessment This fall, doctors discovered that his mental health “restricted his ability to speak meaningfully with others,” and was ordered to make a second assessment.
At a hearing on Friday, the judge in the case was told that four different doctors considered Alyssa incompetent. Both the prosecutor and his lawyer called on him to be transferred to Pueblo’s State Mental Hospital so that doctors could attempt to restore his abilities.
The judge ordered him to be transferred there within the next seven days. District attorney Michael Dougherty said he was confident that Alyssa could face criminal charges if she was given medication and treatment.
Judge Ingrid Bakke has set up a March 15 hearing for a review of capacity recovery to see how Alyssa has progressed.
Neither the prosecutor nor Alyssa’s defense has revealed what his mental illness is.
