Psychiatrists Studying Morales

Posted: Updated:
Pasco, WA- Prosecutors and defense attorneys are waiting for psychiatrists to finish their exam of man about to stand trial for murder.

Jose Garcia Morales and his brother are accused of shooting a Pasco couple in December.

Both brothers are scheduled to have separate trials next month, but psychiatrists from Eastern Washington State Mental Hospital are currently examining whether Jose Morales is competent to stand trial.

His attorney today told the court the state psychiatrists plan to interview Morales' brother later this week.
