HONOLULU (AP) - A 46-year-old Honolulu man charged with murder in 2013 has been ordered to undergo a mental examination to determine if he is fit for trial.

The Honolulu Star-Advertiser reports Circuit Judge Richard Perkins ordered testing for Bryan Suitt, who is charged in the death of 34-year-old Alex Gonzales.

A grand jury indictment charges Suitt with killing Gonzales between Aug. 17 and mid-September 2013.

Gonzales had been dismembered. His remains were found Sept. 15 and Sept. 16, 2013, on both sides of Mililani Memorial Park Road.

An autopsy concluded he had died from multiple sharp force injuries.

Suitt was living in a rented Waikiki apartment at the time. A former roommate told police he last saw Gonzales between Sept. 2 and Sept. 5, 2013, outside Suitt's apartment.
