SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - A competency hearing for a mentally ill man accused of a 2012 massacre at a small nursing college in Oakland is underway.

One Goh is charged with murdering six former classmates and a receptionist at Oikos University, a religious school with a nursing program that caters to Korean nationals. Authorities say the former nursing student planned the attack at the school after a tuition dispute.

KPIX-TV reports (https://cbsloc.al/1HHUpHU ) that if found competent, Goh will stand trial. If he is found to be still incompetent, a three-year deadline to restore his competency would lapse and he would spend the rest of his life ion a psychiatric facility.

Goh has been treated at Napa State Hospital since October 2012.

Judge Gloria Rhynes is expected to rule on Dec. 15.
