Court finds man charged in drive-by competent to stand trial

Posted: Updated:

MADISON, Wis (AP) -- A 20-year-old man accused of killing a woman in a random drive-by shooting has been found competent to stand trial in Milwaukee County.
   Zachary Hays is charged with first degree reckless homicide for allegedly killing his neighbor, 42-year-old Gabriel Sanchez, in a Milwaukee suburb in early May. Hays is also accused of killing 44-year-old Tracy Czaczkowski in a drive-by shooting on the interstate as she was returning to Illinois with her family. He's charged in Sauk County for that shooting with first-degree intentional homicide and three counts of reckless endangerment.
   A Milwaukee judge ordered a competency evaluation of Hays in June after the defense raised concerns about his mental health. The court found Hays competent to proceed Tuesday after a doctor's report was returned.
