Accused Edina bus stop killer Adam Garcia to undergo psychological exam

The man accused of a fatal, unprovoked Thanksgiving-eve stabbing at an Edina bus stop was back in court on Monday.

The always-alert Lou Raguse of KARE-11 reports. Adam Garcia remains in custody in Hennepin County jail.

At his most recent court appearance, Judge Peter Cahill (made famous in the Derek Chauvin case) ordered Garcia to undergo a psychological examination to determine if Garcia is competent to stand trial in the Edina murder case.

You will recall that Garcia has previously been committed to mental health facilities, in 2021 and 2022.

The results of the newest examination will also apply to two other misdemeanor cases against Garcia that are still outstanding: a St. Anthony theft case from September and a July incident on a Metro Transit bus.

Garcia’s next court appearance is scheduled for February 20.
