Competency Exam Ordered

Competency Exam Ordered

The man accused of killing his neighbor back in 2016 is headed for another competency exam.

A judge yesterday ordered Shane Helmbrecht to be examined by doctors to see if he is fit enough to stand trial. Doctors originally said Helmbrecht was not, and he was sent to a mental hospital instead of prison. But he walked away from a halfway house in Tomah back in September, and went on the run. He was arrested last month in Mexico. Prosecutors have not yet said if they plan to refile charges in the homicide case.
