Arizona murder suspect to undergo mental evaluation

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- A 27-year-old man accused of killing a stranger at a Missouri bus station will undergo a mental evaluation.

The Springfield News-Leader reported that Mohamed Dawod, of Glendale, Ariz., is charged with first-degree murder in the September 2011 death of 32-year-old Justin M. Hall, of Mount Vernon, Ohio. Authorities said Dawod randomly shot Hall at the Greyhound bus station in Springfield.

Assistant Prosecutor Todd Myers and defense attorney Stuart Huffman have agreed to an order committing Dawod to the Missouri Department of Mental Health. Dawod will return to Greene County court in January, when officials will report on his progress.

Myers said the process could continue in six-month intervals until Dawod is deemed competent for trial. Dawod could also be ruled to be incompetent and committed to a mental institution permanently.
