Man accused of killing three people on Bradley Ave was found incompetent to stand trial

BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - A man accused of murdering three people in 2010, was sent this morning to spend the next three years in a state hospital.
     
Tokunbo Okuwoga was found incompetent to stand trial.
     
Back in 2010, prosecutors said Okuwoga broke into a home on Bradley Avenue near the Valley Plaza and killed Daina Caraveo,  Felipe Bravo Jr. and Felipe Bravo Sr..
     
A five-year-old who was also home at the time called family members, who called police.
     
Court documents at the time showed that Okuwoga knew his victims, and said he killed them because they were witnesses to a past crime. 
     
His defense attorney, Michael Lukehart said because of his mental state, he cannot keep up with court proceedings. 
 
"My client, has been severely brain damaged all his life and this is because of the residual effects of that," Lukehart said. 
    
In three years, Okuwoga will be re-evaluated to see if he is competent to stand trial.
