Central Ohio judges have ruled that a homeless man accused of stabbing a college professor and a homeless woman charged with causing a bomb scare at an airport have been found mentally incompetent to stand trial.
   
The Columbus Dispatch reported that both have been hospitalized for mental health treatment in an effort to bring them to trial within one year. Their cases are unrelated.
   
Police said Isaac Rotich, 36, was arrested in June after a part-time mathematics professor was stabbed at the downtown campus of Columbus State Community College. Police said Rotich knew the man, who recovered from his injury.
   
Police at Port Columbus International Airport said Klara Bias, 57, was arrested in August in connection with a threatening letter and fake explosive left at the airport.
