An Erie County Judge rules the suspect in the high-profile Erie box cutter case is not competent to stand trial.
Investigators say Steveland Robinson tried to rob a woman then slit her face and throat with a box cutter. The crime happened outside of the Walgreens on West 38th and Peach Streets in July. A forensic psychiatrist testified that Robinson has a long history of mental illness.
The psychiatrist described him as “profoundly psychotic” and “significantly under-medicated”. Robinson will be treated at Torrance State Hospital.
His preliminary hearing was scheduled for tomorrow. No new date is set at this point.
