Cleveland.com reports that a competency hearing has been ordered for Sky Walker the 20 year old autistic man, currently charged with attempted murder in the beating death of his mother, Kent State University professor Gertrude "Trudy" Steuernagel.
Additional charges are currently being considered. Gertrude Steuernagel died since the beating. Presumably a murder charge could be substituted for the attempted murder charge.
