Judge denies release of Carlos Dominguez's mental health records in Davis stabbings

The judge denied the request from the Yolo County District Attorney's Office for the mental health records of the stabbing suspect.

DAVIS, Calif. — Carlos Dominguez, the man accused of stabbing three people in Davis and killing two of them, appeared in court Tuesday.

Yolo County Deputy District Attorney Matt De Moura requested the release of Dominguez's mental health records, but the judge denied that request. The judge said he wants to wait until a doctor can review the mental health reports before they are released.

Also, the court ordered a doctor to do a mental health examination on Dominguez and the results of the mental health examination will be released at the next court hearing, which is in two weeks.

The family of one of the victims, a 20-year-old UC Davis student named Karim Abou Najm, attended the court hearing. They were visibly upset and emotional during the hearing.

1st Stabbing: David Breaux

A man was found dead in Central Park in Davis around 11:20 a.m., April 27. He was identified as David Breaux, 50. Breaux was known to frequent the park and was known to people in the area as ‘Compassion Guy.’

His friend Americo Meza described him as sweet and full of empathy.

"He was very important for the community. His expression was peaceful, was compassion, empathy, tolerance. His love was unconditional, pure," said Meza.

He recalled the many times his friend would raise his spirits.

"We will miss a lot. It's touching my heart. We will miss this guy. It's like an example to be to be in our generation - to live with empathy, with compassion, forgiving everything," said Meza.

2nd Stabbing: Karim Abou Najm

A stabbing at Sycamore Park on April 29 killed Karim Abou Najm, a 20-year-old UC Davis student and graduate of Davis High School.

"Karim was a wonder of energy, a free spirit. Someone who just wants to see goodness around him," said his father, Majdi Abou Najm.

He said the 20-year-old UC Davis student was taking a route he'd taken many times before.

"This path that he took in his last journey home is the same path that we do every day. I walk to my office at UC Davis and he bikes to classes at UC Davis," said Majdi.
