Chen is charged with 2 counts of first-degree murder, 1 count second-degree murder, 2 counts criminal possession of a weapon and 3 counts tampering with physical evidence. Chen faces life in prison without the possibility of parole if convicted.
Huang Chen was ordered held without bail.
Michael Scwed (Attorney) claims Huang Chen was declared unfit to stand trial by two psychiatrists who say Chen "should not be tried because his mental state does not currently
allow him to understand the proceedings."
Queens District Attorney’s Office has not accepted the psychiatrists’ findings
“His alleged violent conduct demonstrates that he is a threat to society, This case will be vigorously prosecuted to ensure that justice is served for the victim and her family."
If a court appointed psychiatrist finds that Chen is fit to stand trial, a court hearing will be
held to determine his fitness to stand trial.
2010 - April 16 - Court hearing scheduled.
