The District Attorney's Office had previously asked for time to review the psychiatrists' reports, but ultimately decided not to contest the evaluations, Serrato said.
"We wanted to take a deeper look at the reports, but decided not to contest them," Serrato said. Judge Robert Foiles "went ahead and decided that he was incompetent."
Dosouqi has been charged with two counts of murder in the deaths of cab driver Abdulmalik Nasher of Pacifica and tow truck driver John Pekipaki of East Palo Alto, and five other felony counts, including two counts each of assault with a deadly weapon and infliction of great bodily injury, and one count of special circumstances for multiple murders.
On the evening of June 17, sheriff's deputies found the body of Nasher, 32, a cab driver who had reportedly been called to a remote location on Skyline Boulevard near Reids Roost Road to pick up a passenger.
Nasher had been stabbed multiple times, according to the Sheriff's Office.
The next evening, deputies investigating Nasher's death heard cries for help from Pekipaki, 31, who was also found with multiple stab wounds and who died at the scene.
Dosouqi was arrested after he allegedly drove his car at deputies, who shot at him and then captured him after he drove into a ditch. He was taken to the hospital for an arm laceration before he was released and booked into San Mateo County Jail.
Dosouqi pleaded not guilty to the charges.
According to the DA's office, Dosouqi was "laughing inexplicably" during court proceedings and said he would be getting out of custody soon.
After the judge asked for the doctors' evaluation, Dosouqi dropped the request to be his own attorney.
