COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - A man accused of stabbing four people at a Columbus, Ohio, building last year has been found not guilty by reason of insanity.

John Mallett also was ordered sent to a Columbus forensic psychiatric facility under a judge's ruling Monday.

The March 2012 attacks appeared to be a random assault on people inside and outside a downtown Columbus trade school.

An earlier court filing by one of the stabbing victims said Mallett was in and out of mental health facilities and jails until Jan. 6, 2012, when he was placed on a Greyhound bus and sent to Columbus from Tennessee.

A message was left with Mallett's attorney Monday seeking comment.
