Court says metro killer suspect clear of mind (2014/05/22)

The 21-year-old college student accused of killing four during a stabbing rampage on the Taipei MRT is in custody at Taipei Detention Center. Cheng Chieh has admitted to the crime and, according to the court that questioned him, is clear of mind. 

Wearing a mask, with a glazed look in his eyes and several wounds on his face is Cheng Chieh. He does not answer reporter questions.

Angry family members of victims waited outside the police station where Cheng was brought. When the suspect was transported to the Haishan Police Precinct to compare his fingerprints with those on the murder weapon, the family members pressed forward.

Police had trouble keeping the situation under control. After eight hours questioning by police, Cheng was subjected to further questioning by prosecutors. They requested that he be held incommunicado on suspicion of homicide.

The suspect admitted to the crime during questioning. There is a strong suspicion of guilt and a risk of flight or collusion.

The court was swift: within 20 minutes, it ordered that Cheng be taken into custody.

Because the suspect admitted to the crime, judges did not feel a need for him to be held incommunicado. The suspect appeared to be clear thinking and gave clear answers during questioning about his motive.

At the detention center Cheng was given his own room because he is thought to pose a risk to other inmates.

鄭捷遭收押

犯下兇殘的台北捷運隨機殺人案的嫌犯鄭捷,凌晨送往海山分局,進行兇刀指紋比對時,遭到死者、傷者家屬層層包圍,大聲痛罵。經過檢方複訊,認為他涉犯殺人重罪,向法院聲請羈押禁見,法官審理20分鐘,由於鄭捷坦承犯行,認為沒有禁見必要,裁定羈押,並被押解往台北看守所。

戴著口罩,雙眼無神,臉上有幾處傷口的鄭捷,任憑記者怎麼問,始終不說話。

死者和傷者的家屬,早已氣憤的在派出所外頭等待,趁警方將鄭捷送往海山分局比對兇刀指紋時,按奈不住情緒,一看到兇嫌,立刻一湧而上。

警員差點攔不住,勉強控制場面。在警方偵訊8小時後,鄭捷被移送到新北地檢署複訊。清晨四點多,檢方以殺人重罪,將鄭捷聲請羈押禁見。

[[新北地檢署發言人 馮成]]
“被告訊問時已坦承犯行,犯罪嫌疑重大,並且有潛逃勾串之虞”

面對重大社會治安案件,法院也火速開庭,短短20分鐘,就裁定羈押。

[[新北地院庭長 樊季康]]
“因為被告坦承犯行,因此法官認為沒有禁見必要,被告在庭訊過程中,思路清晰能夠清楚回答問題,對犯罪動機目的能交代清楚”

鄭捷被移送看守所,考量鄭捷會對其他收容人有威脅,考核獨居房。
