Date for first-degree murder trial has been postponed until after the accused receives treatment.

Rohinie Bisesar is unfit to stand trial for the first-degree murder of Rosemarie Junor, a Toronto jury has decided.

Both the Crown and defence agreed with the opinion of a forensic psychiatrist that Bisesar suffers from schizophrenia and would be unable to conduct a defence or instruct her legal counsel.

Dr. Ian Swayze told the jury Monday that Bisesar, as a result of her current condition, would be unable to effectively engage in the trial process. Swayze said Bisesar’s mind is impaired by hallucinations and delusions.

A trial date scheduled for Jan. 8 has been postponed until after Bisesar receives treatment and is determined to be fit to stand trial for the fatal stabbing of Junor on Dec. 11, 2015.
