Des Moines Man Will Not Stand Trial in Hit-and-Run Death of Homeless Man
DES MOINES, Iowa -- A Des Moines man will not stand trial in the murder of 69-year-old Charles Childs. Police say 21-year-old Donterius Bomar hit Childs while driving a stolen car in January. Childs died of his injuries two days later. Police discovered his body at a Des Moines homeless camp. Bomar was charged with first-degree murder. A Polk County judge has ruled that Bomar is incompetent to stand trial due to mental illness.
