BELOIT, Wis. (AP) - A judge has ruled a Beloit man is competent to stand trial in the death of his ex-girlfriend.

Forty-one-year-old Christopher Rutherford is accused of running over 47-year-old Sheila Rosenbaum of Beloit with her van and killing her on May 11. He’s charged with first-degree reckless homicide.

The Beloit Daily News (http://bit.ly/1zL5q0c ) reports Rutherford’s attorney told a court hearing Tuesday that a psychological evaluation requested by the defense determined Rutherford is competent.

Rock County Judge Richard Werner accepted the report and scheduled Rutherford’s trial for April 27.
