A man charged with murdering his sister-in-law and beating a cab driver into a coma back on April 4 has now been found fit to stand trial.
A forensic psychiatrist told a provincial court judge yesterday that 24-year-old Kenneth Butler has been responding well during treatment in hospital and is now of “sound mind.”

Stephanie Butler was found dead in her home on 38 St. near 42 Ave. the day after cops found 61-year-old Co-op cabbie Pavan Chohan badly beaten inside his taxi.
Police believe Butler attacked and killed his sister-in-law while officers were dealing with the scene surrounding Chohan. Butler allegedly used the cab to get to his brother Michael’s home and banged on the door as his sister-in-law called police.
Michael was out of town when Stephanie Butler’s parents discovered her body the following day.
