• Convicted rapist ordered to undergo mental treatment


    ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. - The teenager accused of attacking a woman with a hammer while he was awaiting trial for rape has been ordered into treatment at a state mental hospital.

    In August, Isaiah Cain was declared incompetent to stand trial for attempted murder, but he has been undergoing more mental evaluations over the past two months.

    In June, Cain was convicted of raping his ex-girlfriend and was sentenced to 20 years in prison.

    While he was out on bail for that crime, investigators said he cut off a GPS monitor and attacked another woman.

    Cain told Eyewitness News he beat a second teenager with a hammer inside his parents' home and tried to choke and drown her.

    Tuesday, a judge said two doctors recommended Cain be assigned to a mental hospital.

    The judge recited the chilling description one doctor used in his report. "What concerns me most is Dr. Meigs has said this is probably one of the most dangerous human beings he has ever interviewed. So the hospital needs to be aware of that," said Orange County Judge Marc Lubet.

    Doctors recommended extra precautions be taken from a safety perspective and the judge ordered that Cain be kept in isolation under increased security.
