A Peoria man, accused of causing the city's deadliest fire over 20 years ago, was again found unfit to stand trial Friday. Joe Pickens is accused of killing nine people, including seven children, in 1989 when he allegedly set fire to a mattress in a family's home on the east bluff. Authorities believe he set the fire after becoming upset after being told to leave the family's home after causing a disturbance. Pickens will have another fitness hearing March 12th.
