WEYMOUTH, Mass. (AP) — A Massachusetts man was found incapable of standing trial after being charged with murder in the 2011 killings of his sister, his mother and his mother's boyfriend.
Twenty-year-old Donald Rudolph was charged with beating and fatally stabbing 24-year-old Caylin Rudolph, 50-year-old Rudolph and 52-year-old Frederick Medina. He was found incompetent for trial in June 2013 after psychiatric evaluation.
After a judge's ruling on Monday, the Norfolk district attorney's office said on Tuesday that Rudolph was unable to help with his own defense. Currently, he is being held at a mental hospital. Last fall, prosecutors requested a new hearing be held to review his mental state, which took place last month.
Another court hearing is scheduled next week, when another competency review could be scheduled in six months.
