Kobili Traoré, the brutal murderer of Jewish physician Sarah Halimi in Paris was not responsible for his actions, a second psychiatric evaluation determined, according to JTA.

The crime was determined to be a hate crime when Halimi’s daughter testified Traoré called her a “dirty Jewess” two years prior to the killing.
In January, Traore was determined to be fit to stand trial. He was placed in a psychiatric hospital for weeks after his arrest in the April 2017 killing despite having no history of mental illness.
