Tantalus Triple Murder Suspect Unfit For Trial

By Minna Sugimoto

HONOLULU (KHNL) -- A man charged with a triple murder at a Tantalus lookout is mentally unfit to stand trial.

An Oahu judge made that decision regarding Adam Mau after hearing from three mental health experts who examined him.

Mau is accused of fatally shooting a cab driver and a Kapahulu couple at a Tantalus lookout in July 2006. He's also charged with tying up three people during a home invasion shortly after.

Defense attorneys say Mau has a history of paranoid schizophrenia. He'll be housed at the Hawaii State Hospital until he's well enough to help his lawyers prepare for trial.
