VIDEO: Accused Deputy Killer Found Incompetent to Stand Trial
Shannon Miles will not stand trial for the murder of Harris County, TX, Deputy Darren Goforth until he is found competent to do so, reports KTRK.
Prosecutors and defense attorneys agreed that Miles has been found incompetent to stand trial, at least for now. Two sets of doctors, one from the state and another set hired by his defense attorneys, reached the same conclusion.
Defense attorneys say their doctors say Miles is schizophrenic and psychotic.
Miles will be sent to a state hospital for 120 days to regain competency. But he might not be moved there for 100 days because of a backlog.
