The woman accused of fatally stabbing a woman at a Shoppers Drug Mart in Toronto’s PATH system in 2015 has been found competent to stand trial.
Rohinie Bisear’s lawyer Robert Karrass tells CityNews the Ontario Review Board has found that Bisesar, 43, is mentally sound, allowing for a hearing to now move forward.
Bisesar is now set to re-appear before a judge on August 1 with the trial set to begin in October.
A trial was supposed to begin earlier this year, however a jury chose to have the board make the determination that Bisesar was mentally fit.
Bisesar faces a charge of first-degree murder in the death of Rosemarie Junor, 28.
