Competency issue in Spokane murder trial

SPOKANE (AP) — A Spokane judge has decided that a man with an IQ of about 60 is competent to stand trial in a fatal stabbing.

Superior Court Judge Maryann Moreno ruled Tuesday that 18-year-old Avondre Graham is capable of understanding court proceedings and helping his lawyers.

The Spokesman-Review reports that on Monday prosecutors urged Moreno to go ahead with the criminal case, while defense attorneys wanted her to set it aside.

Graham is charged with second-degree murder in the September 2012 stabbing of 55-year-old Sharlotte McGill as she walked her dog along a trail. Graham lived at the same apartment complex as McGill.
