SeMo Judge Rules Inmate Accused in Killing Incompetent

NOVEMBER 22, 2005 - Posted at 3:10 p.m. CST

 

FARMINGTON, MO - A judge in Farmington rules that a former Missouri prison inmate in mentally incompetent to assist in his own defense against murder charges.

The judge yesterday ordered 25-year-old David Richard of St. Louis into a mental health facility for six months to determine if the case can proceed.  Richard is charged with first-degree murder for the 2003 killing of 29-year-old Lamont Daugherty.

Daugherty was killed while the two men were in an administrative segregation cell at the Potosi Correctional Center.  Autopsy reports showed Daugherty was apparently stomped to death.

If Richard is allowed to stand trial, he could face the death penalty if convicted.
