SAN DIEGO (CNS) - An Oceanside man accused of fatally stabbing one of his roommates after finding out the victim was having an intimate relationship with the defendant's aunt is mentally competent to stand trial, a judge ruled Friday.
Criminal proceedings were reinstated in the case against Jesus Vasquez Borja.
Borja, 30, is charged with murdering Ramon Garcia Hilario on May 18, 2008.
