Man accused of stabbing roommate unfit for trial

A Santa Cruz County judge has ruled that a man accused of stabbing to death his roommate at a Felton adult-care facility is unfit to stand trial.

Judge Heather Morse on Monday ordered that 35-year-old Cesar Ojeda Hernandez be sent back to a state mental hospital for further treatment.

Prosecutors say Hernandez killed 51-year-old Stephen Cline at the Rose Acres Rest Home in 2006 and seriously injured a caregiver who tried to help Cline.

Hernandez, who was diagnosed with schizophrenia, initially was found mentally incompetent to stand trial. Officials brought him back to face the murder charges in 2008, after his condition improved.

But, prosecutors say, his condition has worsened again as his case stalled in court.
