YOUNGSTOWN — Judge R. Scott Krichbaum has found a suspect in a March 8 East Side homicide incompetent to stand trial.

The Mahoning County Common Pleas Court judge made the finding concerning Daniel Ortello, 20, of South Bruce Street, who is charged with the murder of Seetreon A. Dothard, 29, of West Judson Avenue, and attempted murder and felonious assault against K’Shawn Weaver on the same day.

In making his ruling Thursday, the judge concurred with an evaluation report from the Forensic Psychiatric Center of Northeast Ohio in Austintown.

Police found Dothard lying face down on the street in the 200 block of Lansdowne Boulevard, dead of an apparent gunshot wound to the head.

Ortello was arrested March 13 in the psychiatric unit at Forum Health Northside Medical Center and placed in Mahoning County Jail.

Ortello will be held at Northcoast Behavioral Health Center, a Cleveland psychiatric hospital, and re-evaluated for competency in six months.

If he is restored to competency, an evaluation of his sanity at the time of the homicide will be conducted. Ortello has pleaded innocent and innocent by reason of insanity.
