OGDEN, Utah (AP) -- The man accused of attacking two sisters with a knife as they hiked along a trail above Mount Ogden Golf Course in July is fit to stand trial.
That's from two doctors who evaluated Gordon William Thomas.
The 41-year-old is charged with three first-degree felony counts of aggravated kidnapping, two counts of aggravated attempted murder, and a weapons charge.
Police say Thomas attacked the two women with a knife while they hiked with their mother. They received only minor injuries.
Thomas was on parole after serving 21-years for kidnapping and raping a teenager in 1983. He was found living near the crime scene and arrested the day after the attack.
A preliminary hearing is scheduled for October 19th.
