ROCKFORD, Ill. (WTVO) — The man accused of shooting and killing three people in Rockford appeared in court on Friday.
The judge was supposed to decide if Duke Webb, 39, is fit to face trial. He is charged with First Degree Murder and has yet to enter a plea.
The former Army sergeant allegedly opened fire inside Don Carter Lanes back in December 2020. Dennis Steinhoff, Jerome Woodfork, and Thomas Furseth all died. Three other people were hurt.
Webb’s attorney claims that he may have been suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder. He deployed to Afghanistan four times, with his most recent deployment ending just months before the attack.
However, at Friday’s proceedings, the judge found a defense report on his mental fitness was outdated, and Webb tried to file several motions without his lawyers present.
He will be back in court on June 16th, and his fitness hearing was rescheduled for September.
