Woman accused in PATH stabbing found unfit to stand trial

Woman accused in PATH stabbing found unfit to stand trial”

Rohinie Bisesar is unfit to stand trial for the first-degree murder of Rosemarie Junor, a Toronto jury has decided.

A trial date scheduled for January 8 has been postponed until after Bisesar receives treatment and is determined to be fit to stand trial for the fatal stabbing of Junor on December 11, 2015.

Swayze told the jury that because of her condition, Bisesar could not effectively conduct her own defence or instruct a defence counsel - one of the requirements of being fit to stand trial.

Throughout the proceedings, Bisesar often interjected while McMahon spoke and provided long-winded answers when questioned by her lawyer.

Bisesar has maintained that she does not have any mental disorder, but has said she believes she is being controlled by electronic devices that have been implanted in her and believes she would be fine if the "devices" were removed.

At that time, if the jury finds she is now fit, a new trial will be set.

Justice John McMahon is expected to make a 60-day treatment order.

Bisesar will likely be given anti-psychotic and anti-anxiety medications while at CAMH, the court heard.

In his direction to the jurors today, McMahon asked them to consider whether Bisesar is even aware she's on trial, if she knows what the trial is about and whether she understands the charges against her.

"If she has become fit, we are then able to proceed towards trial", Karrass said.

Bisesar will be transferred to CAMH as soon as space opens up there, likely within the next two weeks, McMahon said.
