Man in Detroit explosive case still not competent

A judge has ruled that a Michigan man who authorities say placed an explosive outside a Detroit federal building is still not mentally competent to face the charges.

The Mining Journal of Marquette reports (http://bit.ly/zc2PPD ) that U.S. Magistrate Judge Timothy Greeley made the determination Tuesday in the case of 44-year-old Gary Mikulich. Greeley made a similar determination in August. Mikulich is in custody for treatment to try to improve his mental health.

Defense attorney Paul Peterson told The Associated Press Thursday he wouldn't comment on the case.

Mikulich, of Kingsford, is charged with leaving a metal box containing explosive components outside the McNamara Federal Building on Feb. 26, 2011. After Mikulich's arrest, his family said he was diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia 18 years ago and often refuses to take medication.
