US man not fit for trial in killing of mother

US man not fit for trial in killing of mother

A California man accused of fatally beating his mother, cutting off her arm and putting part of her skull in the refrigerator has been found mentally incompetent to stand trial.
A San Diego County judge reviewed a doctor's evaluation of Bryan Chenhua Chang on Monday and ruled the 28-year-old did not understand the murder charge he faces.
Chang is being held without bail and will be sent to a state mental hospital until he is fit for trial.
Sherry Chu Chang's body was found in January at her home. Detectives traced a bloody fingerprint back to her son, who was arrested two days later.
Prosecutors say the two might have had a disagreement about money.
