Man found incompetent to stand trial in killing of St. Paul Good Samaritan

Eaton, Lionel

A court has found a man incompetent to stand trial in the shooting death of a St. Paul man who ran out of his home to respond to a multi-vehicle crash last September.

Court documents indicate 27-year-old Lionel Eaton was found incompetent due to mental illness. Eaton is charged with second- and third-degree murder in the death of 31-year-old Javier Sanmiguel.

The victim was shot as he and other residents responded to a crash that Eaton's car reportedly caused. Eaton remains in custody as his mental health is monitored.

His next hearing is scheduled in April.
