OAKLAND, Calif. —
The man accused of killing seven of his former classmates at Oakland's Oikos University in April 2012 is being sent to Napa State Hospital after he was ruled incompetent to stand trial earlier this month.
Alameda County Superior Court Judge Carrie Panetta ordered that One Goh, 44, a Korean national living in Oakland to be transported to the state mental institution by February 11.
Panetta suspended legal proceedings on Jan. 7 against One Goh, 44, a Korean national living in Oakland after finding him incompetent to stand trial.
Monday's hearing was to determine to which mental hospital he would be sent.
Goh is being held without bail at the Alameda County Jail in Dublin on seven counts of murder, three counts of attempted murder for allegedly shooting three victims who survived and 10 special-circumstance allegations, including committing murder during a carjacking.
Police said that Goh fled the campus after the April 2 shootings in a car belonging to one of the victims.
He was arrested in Alameda a short time later after he confessed to a Safeway security guard that he had just shot several people, according to police.
Goh is a former student who had left the school voluntarily. Prosecutors have said he appears to have wanted a refund of his tuition, and may have been targeting an administrator who was not present the day of the shooting.
According to a probable cause statement filed in court by Oakland police Officer Robert Trevino, Goh has admitted that he carried out the shootings.
Those killed were students Lydia Sim, 21, Sonam Choedon, 33, Grace Kim, 23, Doris Chibuko, 40, Judith Seymour, 53, and Tshering Bhutia, 38, and Katleen Ping, 24, who worked at the school.
Goh's lawyer, David Klaus, said earlier this month that the two psychiatrists who have examined Goh concluded that he suffers from paranoid schizophrenia and is unable to cooperate with his defense team because he doesn't understand the criminal justice system.
