Roselawn ATM shooter ruled incompetent to stand trial

ROSELAWN (FOX19) - The man who allegedly shot an ATM technician earlier this year was found incompetent to stand trial Monday.

Police say Yonah Israel, 36, shot and killed Daniel Muscarella at a free-standing PNC Bank ATM in Roselawn.

Israel, who is charged with murder, will undergo mental treatment. Judge Nadine Allen set a hearing for an update on Israel's progress on May 27 of next year. On Oct. 27 the court ordered that Israel be examined by the Court Clinic Forensic Services. The examiner was to evaluate and report if Israel was competent to stand trial or if there was a probability that Israel could become competent to stand trial.

The examiner found that he is not competent to stand trial.

According to Cincinnati Police Captain Elliot Isaac, Israel and Muscarella engaged in a verbal altercation before the September shooting. Officials believe that Israel acted alone.

Isaac said physical evidence witnesses were key to the investigation. Authorities interviewed at least one dozen witnesses.
