Military Veteran Competent To Stand Trial

The Russell man who made bombs  threats last month is being held without right to bail pending a  dangerousness hearing next week.  

Robert Decoteau was arraigned today in  Hampden Superior Court on multiple charges of possessing explosives and  making bomb threats.  

On May 2nd he led police on a high-speed chase  along Route 5 in West Springfield reportedly waving pipe bombs out the  window of his truck.  

Based on a psychiatric  evaluation Decoteau has been found competent to stand trial.
