RANCHO CUCAMONGA — A Montclair man who allegedly murdered his parents in February has been committed to a mental-health facility following a judge’s ruling that the man is mentally incompetent to stand trial.
Adrian Marvin Bonadie, 33, was committed by Judge Raymond Van Stockum on May 14 to Patton State Hospital in San Bernardino, where he will stay for no more than three years and be involuntary medicated.
Bonadie is accused of shooting and killing Earl Bonadie, 63, and Angela Bonadie, 62, on Feb. 6 in the family’s home in the 4800 block of Moreno Street.
Criminal proceedings against Bonadie were suspended on April 28 when Van Stockum ruled that Bonadie was incompetent, and the case will remain suspended until a judge determines that Bonadie is competent.
During a May 14 hearing in West Valley Superior Court, Van Stockum ordered the hospital to provide an update on Bonadie’s condition by Aug. 17, and provide further updates every six months, according to court records.
In addition to murder charges, Bonadie faces three counts of attempted murder for shooting at three female police officers who went to his home to investigate the incident.
Bonadie’s sister told police following the killings that her brother was schizophrenic, and his behavior had become increasingly unusual.
Family members made arrangements to remove weapons from their home prior to the incident, but failed to follow through before the killings took place.
Bonadie told police after his arrest that he believed his family was practicing witchcraft, according to police reports in the case’s public court file.
