GREEN BAY, Wis. (WBAY) – A man accused of attacking two children and setting fire to a popular Green Bay restaurant has been found competent to stand trial.
Jesus Castilloveitia-Quinton appeared before a Brown County judge Tuesday to review results of a competency exam. The court says the 18-year-old is mentally fit to stand trial.
Castilloveitia-Quinton is charged with Arson and Felony Child Abuse for the Aug. 21 incident at the Ten O One Club on Main Street.
Castilloveitia-Quinton told police an abandoned apartment above the Ten O One Club was his “secret hideout.” Police allege he lured some children into the building, beat them, and started setting fires.
Four separate fires were started inside the vacant building with the children still inside, police said.
Court documents say Castilloveitia-Quinton’s mother told police back in April that her son has mental health issues. On the day Castilloveitia-Quinton was released from jail after serving a disorderly conduct sentence, he was arrested again for assaulting his mother and locking her out of her own house.
During Tuesday’s hearing, the judge ruled the $25,000 cash bond should continue. Castilloveitia-Quinton’s next court hearing is scheduled for Oct. 14.
