HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - A judge has found a man accused of going on a freeway shooting spree fit to stand trial for murder.
Toby Stangel, 29, has pleaded not guilty to 20 counts including murder and attempted murder.
The rampage on June 3, 2011 started on Kapahulu Avenue. Bullets missed a man in an SUV, but Tammy Nguyen, 54, who was driving a minivan was killed. Ngyuyen was the mother of 10.
Honolulu police said Stangel then headed onto the H-1 freeway, slamming into Amy Asuncion's car and opening fire. She was critically injured. Investigators said Stangel also shot at Samson Naupoto as he drove by, hitting him in the leg. Then Stangel allegedly shot at officers at a traffic stop near the Aiea off-ramp.
The judge made his decision based on the reports of three mental health experts appointed to examine Stangel.
Bail for Stangel is $5 million.
