(Las Vegas, NV)  —  The man at the center of the valley’s 2007 hepatitis C outbreak is heading to a mental hospital.  Doctor Dipak Desai was taken into custody yesterday, and will head to the Lakes Crossing facility in Sparks for evaluation. 

Two doctors found Desai incompetent to stand trial on criminal charges.  If doctors find him competent, Desai will go to trial next year.
