After a confidential hearing Thursday, a Mount Eden man accused in the stabbing death of his nephew was ruled incompetent to stand trial.
George T. Henderson allegedly stabbed his nephew, Phillip Ray Bentley Jr., two days before Christmas in 2007.
An order from Circuit Court Judge Charles Hickman, which was entered Friday, says, “Hearing held. Testimony taken by Dr. Drogin. Court finds [Henderson] incompetent to stand trial.”
Henderson is now scheduled for a hearing on Aug. 4 at 9 a.m.
