Accused Md. killer ruled incompetent
A man accused of killing a driver sitting at a traffic signal last summer has been ruled incompetent to stand trial.
The ruling Monday by Anne Arundel Circuit Judge Philip Caroom means that 26-year-old James William King Jr. will be held at Clifton T. Perkins Hospital Center in Jessup until a doctor deems him competent to stand trial.
King is charged with first-degree murder in the Aug. 6 slaying of 40-year-old Calvin Chi-Man Yeung of Severn.
Police say Yeung was in his car waiting for a red light to change in Severn when a man approached the driver's side and shot him twice in the head.
