San Francisco (AP) — A federal judge in San Francisco is examining his ability to confront the trial of a Mexican man who shot and killed 32-year-old Kate Steinle. The shooting stood out in President Donald Trump’s run for the White House 4. A few years ago.
The San Francisco Examiner reported on Friday that Jose Innes has been accused of federal guns since Judge Vince Chabria of the Federal District Court raised “serious concerns” about his mental abilities in January. -The proceedings against Garcia Zarate are pending.
“I’m tired of waiting here,” Garcia Zarate told the court on Friday through a Spanish interpreter, adding that he would be sentenced to imprisonment or deported to Mexico.
Two doctors diagnosed Garcia Zarate as schizophrenia and found that he was unfit to stand in court because he was unable to follow court proceedings. They said they believed the electronics were broadcasting a message to him and other prisoners, and that his lawyer was receiving bribes from the police.
Garcia Zarate also wants to plead guilty. The judge told him he was not allowed to do so on Friday.
Garcia Zarate has been in custody since 1 July 2015 and fired at a crowded San Francisco pier, causing a political fire over immigration and crime.
A jury in the San Francisco High Court acquitted him on various charges, including murder, in late 2017. The Court of Appeals later overturned the only conviction obtained against him, the felony of possessing a firearm.
His defense lawyer in a state lawsuit alleged that he picked up the gun without knowing what it was and accidentally fired it.
