DETROIT (AP) - A 66-year-old Detroit man faces a competency hearing Friday in the shooting deaths of two women last year at a retirement home.
Mike Reda is charged in Wayne County Circuit Court with two counts of first-degree murder, as well as attempted murder and other felony charges.
Fifty-nine-year-old Deborah Socia and 61-year-old Maria Gonzalez where shot with an assault rifle on Oct. 20 at the two-story, 80-unit Pablo Davis Elder Living Center in southwest Detroit.
Reda has told police he dated the same woman for several years. He says the two shooting victims befriended her and frequently kept the girlfriend away from him.
He said during his police interrogation that he "was drunk" and "angry" on the day of the shootings and "just couldn't take it no more."
