Milan pickaxe triple killer judged fit for trial
Mental competence 'not totally absent' say psychiatrists07 October, 14:48
Mada 'Adam' Kabobo, 31, was said to be sufficiently "able to understand" what he was doing to face murder charges.
Psychiatrists told judges that Kabobo's ability to control his actions was "greatly diminished but not totally absent".
Kabobo was deemed a danger to himself and society.
Kabobo's victims were a 64-year-old pensioner walking his dog; an unemployed 40-year-old standing outside a cafe; and a 21-year-old helping his father stack newspapers at their kiosk. Two other people were injured in Kabobo's string of attacks, which lasted an hour before he was stopped by police.
Kabobo, who had not sought treatment for mental problems, told police "I never sleep".
The Ghanaian, who has a criminal record, came to Italy illegally in 2011 and was later served an expulsion order.
