Idaho Judge to Decide if Road Rage Driver Fit for Trial
BOISE, Idaho (AP) — A southwest Idaho judge will decide whether a Boise man charged with first-degree murder in what police describe as a road-rage shooting death is competent to stand trial.
The Idaho Statesman reports that 4th District Judge Ron Wilper is considering the matter concerning Shawn Fisher after two days of testimony last week. A trial had been scheduled to start Wednesday. Boise police say Fisher rammed into a car and fired a bullet into the driver’s side door over a parking dispute in February.
Minutes later, he allegedly shot and killed Matthew Mohler-Kerns as Mohler-Kerns sat in his car. Fisher also is charged with aggravated battery, aggravated assault, use of a weapon in the commission of crime and kicking a police dog.
