A Woodridge man accused of beating his father to death with a weed trimmer has been found unfit to stand trial.

Yashesh Desai, 21, is charged with first-degree murder. Prosecutors say he killed his 47-year-old sleeping father in August.

A judge reportedly ruled Desai unfit for trial after a psychologist testified that he appears to suffer from a psychotic disorder.

Desai is expected to get care at a state-run mental health center.
