OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Two of three psychiatrists who examined a University of California, Berkeley student charged with murder say the suspect is sane enough to stand trial.
A judge scheduled a May 18 hearing for Pablo Gomez to enter a plea after the doctors’ final report was filed in court Monday. The 22-year-old is charged with stabbing to death a young school teacher and severely wounding another woman earlier this year in Berkeley.
The campus activist touched off debate over pronoun preference earlier this year when it was reported that Gomez prefers to be called ‘they’ rather than ‘he.’
Conservative commentator Ann Coulter ridiculed the pronoun change and mocked Gomez’s activist background. Breitbart.com and other conservative political websites then picked up the story.
Gomez’s attorney says he is reviewing the doctors’ reports.
