A man in Glendora, Calif., has been ruled competent to stand trial for the murder of his father at a self-storage facility.
A judge ruled Thursday that Jonathan Pedraza, 25, is mentally competent to stand trial for the Sept. 10 murder of Miguel Pedraza, 62.
Pedraza is accused of killing his father with a dumbbell at A-1 Mini Storage, 4391 Irwindale Ave. Pedraza then crashed a car through the facility’s security gate, and was involved in a hit-and-run accident in Baldwin Park, police said.
Police have not released a motive for the murder. Pedraza’s next court hearing is Oct. 25.
