    ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- A Florida man accused of throwing his young daughter to her death off a Tampa Bay area bridge has been found competent to stand trial.

    Johnchuck, 27, was deemed incompetent in February 2015, the month after prosecutors say he dropped 5-year-old Phoebe Jonchuck into Tampa Bay. Friday’s ruling by Pinellas County Judge Joseph Bulone comes after state mental health doctors in January determined he was ready to stand trial.

    Prosecutors say they’re hoping for a fall trial.

    The Tampa Bay Times reports Jonchuck will remain at the state hospital in Gainesville until the case is closer to trial.

    Pinellas-Pasco Chief Assistant State Attorney Brian Bartlett says they’re concerned Jonchuck will become incompetent again if he’s not forced to take his medication.

    The state is seeking the death penalty.

    So this case has been delayed several times since we last updated it. Hopefully it will actually go to trial this time.

    The day John Jonchuck was supposed to go on trial in the murder of his 5-year-old daughter, attorneys met instead to discuss a new trial date.

    The trial was delayed after Jonchuck’s attorneys raised concerns about one of the prosecutors’ key expert witnesses last week. On Monday, Judge Chris Helinger reset the proceeding for March 18.

    By then it will have been more than four years since Phoebe Jonchuck was dropped from the Dick Misener Bridge just after midnight, on Jan. 8, 2015. Her father faces a first-degree murder charge.

    Jonchuck did not attend Monday’s hearing.

    Defense attorneys, who are expected to argue that Jonchuck was insane at the time of the crime and should therefore be found not guilty, filed a motion last week to exclude the testimony of psychiatrist Emily Lazarou. Hired by prosecutors, Lazarou evaluated Jonchuck over two days in October 2017 and May of this year and determined Jonchuck was a pyschopath, but not insane at the time of the crime, according to the motion.

    Lazarou’s full report on Jonchuck is not available in the court file. But defense attorneys offered a glimpse of it in their motion to exclude Lazarou, quoting from her analysis:

    "I do not believe that Mr. Jonchuck meets the insanity criteria," she wrote, according to the motion. Lazarou said Jonchuck was "malingering," or exaggerating his ailment to beat the case.

    "I believe that John knew exactly what he was doing," she wrote. "I believe that it was premeditated and the purpose of this senseless, horrific crime was to punish those he perceived to have loved Phoebe over him."
