JUDGE: SHA INCOMPETENT FOR TRIAL IN PURDUE DORM ROOM MURDER
Ji Min Sha, a former Purdue student accused of stabbing his McCutcheon Hall roommate to death in October, is not competent to stand trial, a Tippecanoe County judge ruled Monday.
The order, assigning Sha to the state’s Division of Mental Health and Addiction, came two weeks after a competency hearing, where two court-appointed doctors said the 22-year-old likely suffers from schizophrenia and has grandiose delusions that he was a CIA operative at the time of roommate Varun Chheda’s death.
