Jerusalem District Court on Wednesday agreed to give the state until June 1 to study a psychiatric evaluation of alleged Jewish terrorist Jack Tytel before deciding whether or not to accept its conclusion that he was not fit to stand trial.

The evaluation was prepared by psychiatrists at the Shaar Menashe mental hospital, where the suspected killer has been kept under observation since mid-February .

According to the psychiatrists, Tytel is, at this moment, detached from reality and incapable of understanding the legal procedures going on around him. However, they also wrote that they could not determine whether or not the defendant had been legally sane, that is, aware of what he was doing, when he perpetrated the crimes he has been charged with.
