Daly City woman accused of attempted murder found incompetent again
September 13, 2013, 05:00 AM Daily Journal Staff Report

Min Bang

A Daly City woman once found mentally unfit but later competent to stand trial for allegedly attempting to kill her father by torching his home and attacking a responding police officer is headed back to Napa State Hospital.

Min Kyung Bang, 34, was supposed to have a judge decide yesterday if she is not able to aid in her own defense against charges of attempted murder, arson, battery on a peace officer and battery on a vehicle operator. Instead, Napa medical staff sent the court an addendum withdrawing their earlier conclusion she was restored to competency. Bang was recommitted for treatment.

Bang had been at Napa State Hospital since May 2012 — two months after she refused to come to court to enter a plea and doubts were raised about her mental competency — and March of this year when she returned to San Mateo County. Competency is a person’s ability to aid in his or her own defense unlike sanity which is a person’s mental state at the time of an alleged crime.

Bang lived with her father in Daly City and, on Feb. 21, 2012, prosecutors say she set fire to the residence along with another unit. The arson was reportedly captured on a neighbor’s surveillance tape. When Daly City police officers arrived at the scene approximately 20 minutes later, Bang allegedly struck one with an umbrella and kicked and punched at the others. Police reported Bang was rambling and incoherent.
