A man accused of throwing his 5-year-old daughter off a Bay-area bridge has been found competent to stand trial.
That’s the ruling from a judge in Pinellas County in the case of John Jonchuck.
Police say Jonchuck threw his daughter, Phoebe, off the Dick Meisner Bridge back in January of 2015 in front of a St. Pete police officer.
Her body was found hours later.
Jonchuck is facing first degree murder charges.
Pretrail hearing is set for March 27th.
