Dave Tronnes

Dave Tronnes has been imprisoned since August 2018, more than four months after his wife, Shanti Cooper-Tronnes, was discovered dead inside a home on East Copeland Drive on April 24.

His lawyers submitted documentation on Monday alleging that a doctor determined he is not fit to aid in his own defense at trial owing to a Schizophrenia diagnosis.

Moreover, according to court documents, Dr. Jeffrey Danziger visited Tronnes on September 16 and decided that the suspected killer is incompetent owing to “ongoing indications of the Schizophrenia diagnosis.”

The records do not go into depth about Tronnes’ “manifestations,” but they do state that he “satisfies the conditions for involuntary placement” in a mental health hospital under the Baker Act.

Tronnes will be subjected to a competency hearing, where a judge will make a final decision on whether he is competent to stand trial.

However, It is unclear when that competency hearing will take place, or if one will be allowed at all.

Tronnes is suspected of beating and strangling his wife. Tronnes dialed 911 and informed dispatchers that he had discovered his wife in the shower.

He then told detectives that he discovered his wife face down in the tub. He informed detectives that he thought she slipped and fell in the shower.

“Shanti did not fall and get those injuries,” Detective Teresa Sprague stated a month after Tronnes was arrested. “It’s quite clear to me that Shanti was murdered.”

Tronnes acknowledged to detectives that his wife had a $250,000 life insurance policy on which he was the beneficiary.

Nevertheless, Tronnes is charged with first-degree murder. A status hearing in his case is scheduled for November 8.
