One of the men charged in the killing a New Franklin couple earlier this year will have a full competency hearing.
The Beacon Journal reports Shawn Eric Ford Jr. didn't accept the accuracy of competency reports done by two psychologists, including one chosen by the defense. That means both of them will be in court on October 28 to testify.
Common Pleas Judge Tom Parker said he has no questions about whether Ford is fit to stand trial, but recognized that he has a right to a hearing.
Ford pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity in June to a long list of charges surrounding the April deaths of Jeffrey and Margaret "Peg" Schobert. His co-defendant, 14-year-old Jamal Vaughn, is being tried in the juvenile court system.
