Two other doctors, however, differed in their diagnosis.
A doctor who had evaluated him at the state hospital insisted Johnson was making progress.
"We would like another chance to restore his competency" psychiatrist Peter Heinbecker testified.
Eric Nielsen, a clinical social worker who also evaluated Johnson, said he found some of his symptoms "suspect," and that Johnson might be faking it to some extent.
Upon his release from the hospital last year, Johnson moved to Oregon, but has since returned to Utah and is now living with his mother. He has never entered a plea to the Utah charges, and his family maintains the allegations are false. He declined comment Wednesday as he left the courtroom.
Christy Danner, the mother of one of the two victims in Utah, said she feels the system has let her daughter down.
Danner, whose daughter gave her permission to speak publicly about the case, said her deepest fear is that another child might be harmed.
"I don't know that he's crazy enough that he can't stand trial, but he needs to be off the streets," Danner said.
