An Ottawa man accused of viciously attacking an elderly Lethbridge woman in her home has been found fit to stand trial.

21-year old Adam Hobkirk-Onate has recently completed a 60-day psychiatric assessment.

According to a report from the Southern Alberta Forensic Psychiatry Centre there’s no indication that he’s suffering from any mental disorder, and may be held criminally responsible for his actions.

Hobkirk-Onate is accused of sneaking into the basement of a 75 year old woman’s home on Fairway Street South in May, staying there for a day,  and then beating her with a bicycle and stealing her vehicle. He’s charged with aggravated assault, housebreaking and disguise with intent.

Hobkirk-Onate will review the report with his lawyer and is scheduled to be back in a Lethbridge courtroom on Sept. 13th to take the next step.

I started my radio career in 2015, shortly after graduating from Lethbridge College. I have a very strong passion for local news.

Proudly born in 1994, I grew up most of my life in Sylvan Lake, AB and I’ve lived in the Lethbridge since 2012. I’m a below average golfer on a good day, I take as many hiking trips to Waterton as possible in the summer and I love my two cats, Outlaw and Jynx, and my dog, Maverick, more than most people I know.

I look forward to providing accurate, timely news coverage in southern Alberta for plenty of years to come!
