Accused Killer Talancon Back in Court

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash.- Accused killer Robert Talancon also appeared in court Thursday morning for a mental competency hearing.

Charges had been dropped against Talancon after psychiatrists said he was mentally unfit to aid in his defense due to brain damage from a severe infection.

Prosecutors refiled charges against Talancon earlier this year after doctors said he was clear to face trial.

He's accused of beating a man to death.
