A Cambridge Township man was ruled competent to stand trial in a knife assault case during a hearing Friday in Lenawee County Circuit Court. Marcus Case Kasparian, 58, was ordered to return Aug. 20 for a pre-trial hearing before Judge Anna Marie Anzalone.

Kasparian was arrested after a visitor at his Dewey Lake home was reported stabbed in the chest several times on June 14, 2013. Cambridge Township police reported the victim, a 57-year-old Warren man, was seriously injured.

A not-guilty plea was entered by Kasparian when he was arraigned in circuit court on July 10 last year. The prosecution stalled after a defense motion for a psychological evaluation was granted in December. A report recently became available. A state psychologist who examined Kasparian recommended he be found competent for trial. Kasparian remains free on bond.
