Man faces competency hearing in 2 shooting deaths

DETROIT (AP) - A 66-year-old Detroit man faces a competency hearing in the shooting deaths of two women last year at a retirement home.
Mike Reda is due Friday morning in Wayne County Circuit Court on two counts of first-degree murder, assault with intent to murder and other felony charges.
Fifty-nine-year-old Deborah Socia and 61-year-old Maria Gonzalez where shot with an assault rifle on Oct. 20 at the two-story, 80-unit Pablo Davis Elder Living Center in southwest Detroit.
Reda told police that he had dated the same woman for several years and that the two shooting victims befriended her and frequently kept the girlfriend away from him.
He said during his police interrogation that he "was drunk" and "angry" on the day of the shootings and "just couldn't take it no more."
