    The Maryland man charged with killing his brother, sister-in-law and an elderly friend of his mother before going on the run last fall was found incompetent to stand trial in Howard County on Tuesday. Jeffrey Allen Burnham, 47, who was committed to the care of the Maryland Department of Health, was also found incompetent to stand trial earlier this month in Allegany County, where one of the killings took place. The Baltimore Sun reported Tuesday that neither prosecutors, nor Burnham’s defense attorney, challenged the evaluation. A Howard County judge ordered Burnham to be committed to the health department until he is competent to stand trial, or there is no indication he will become competent to stand trial. More Howard County News More Maryland News More Crime News Police charging documents said Burnham was apparently motivated by anti-COVID vaccine conspiracy theories when he allegedly shot and killed his brother Brian Robinette, 58, and sister-in-law Kelly Sue Robinette, 57, in their Ellicott City house on Sept. 30.

    A Texas judge has found Darriynn Brown, 19, the man accused of kidnapping four-year-old Dallas boy Cash Gernon and stabbing him to death last May, incompetent to stand trial. Dallas County Magistrate Judge Farrel Chapman’s decision Friday came after doctors for both the defense and the prosecution deemed Brown incompetent, the Dallas Morning News reports. Chapman ordered that Brown receive treatment at the North Texas State Hospital System. If Brown, charged with capital murder, regains competency, he would stand trial for his alleged crimes. Heath Harris, Brown’s attorney, asserts that his client is schizophrenic and suffers from additional mental disorders. According to the Dallas Morning News: In Texas, defendants must be able to understand court proceedings and help with their own defense. Competency to stand trial is different from sanity at the time of the crime, although Brown’s lawyer is mounting an insanity defense. An insanity defense means that attorneys admit their clients committed a crime but did not know right from wrong at the time. On May 15 of last year, Gernon was discovered dead in the 7500 block of...
    The boy and his brother were in the care of a woman who was reportedly dating their father at the time of his murder. Their father had been on a work trip for months when his boy was murdered. The twins' mother accused the father of running off with the boys and said she had been searching for them for months. Brown may never be found competent to stand trial for the murder of Cash. Even if he is found competent to stand trial in the future, his defense may argue that he was insane at the time of the murder. If that's the case, the prosecution will have to prove that Brown knew what he was doing was wrong at the time that he did it. "We ask people to be patient in forming their opinions or judgments about this," defense attorney Valerie Baston said.Here's a local news video about the ruling: Man accused of murdering Dallas 4-year-old Cash Gernon found incompetent to stand trial www.youtube.com

In a December order issued by Contra Costa Superior Court Judge Clare Maier ordered the Department of State Hospitals to admit Michael Ray-West Hill, 38, within 60 days.
