Earlier this month the Washington Post covered the recent developments in the case of Jasper Spires, who stabbed and killed 24 year old Kevin Sutherland during a robbery aboard a Red Line train headed from the Rhode Island Avenue station to NoMa in July of 2015. The ferocious attack by an 18 year old Spires shocked the community and terrified other passengers on the train. Spires' bizarre behavior during and after the attack, and the hyper-violence he displayed, raised questions about his mental state. Doctors who have examined Spires say he is competent to stand trial and be found criminally responsible for his behavior at the time of the attack.
