PASCO, WA- A murder trial called off last summer is back on.
Pasco police arrested Jose Garcia Morales and his brother three years ago for murdering a man and critically wounding the man's wife.
A jury convicted Morales's brother Ramon, but a judge ruled Morales mentally incompetent to stand trial.
Doctors at Eastern State Hospital re-evaluated Morales in October and concluded his mental state has improved.
Corrections officers had to bring Morales into court on a wheelchair, but prosecutors say Morales seems to get worse only when he has to go before doctors or a judge.
Morales' attorneys say Morales still seldom communicates, and when he does, he's incoherent.
The judge set the trial for February.
