FOND DU LAC, Wis. (AP) — A Mexican American man from Wisconsin charged with homicide as a hate crime because prosecutors say he intentionally crashed his pickup truck into a white motorcyclist has been committed to a psychiatric facility. Twenty-seven-year-old Daniel Navarro, of Fond du Lac, was charged with first-degree intentional homicide with a hate crime enhancer for the July 3 crash that killed Phillip Thiessen in Fond du Lac County. Prosecutors say Navarro struck Thiessen’s motorcycle head-on in the town of Taycheedah. A Fond du Lac County judge ruled Wednesday that Navarro is not competent to stand trial. Authorities say Navarro told investigators he had been harassed by co-workers and neighbors, and poisoned, drugged and verbally attacked by white people because of his race.
