FRESNO, Calif. (AP) - An Army veteran accused in a Fresno murder has been ordered transferred from jail to Atascadero State Hospital after a judge found him legally incompetent to stand trial.

The Fresno Bee reports (https://bit.ly/1pC3OFD) Gregory Webb’s mental competency has been an issue at dozens of hearings in Fresno County Superior Court.

Criminal proceedings against the 40-year-old him were suspended in June after his lawyer called into question Webb’s ability to assist in his defense.

The judge said Monday that if Webb doesn’t take his anti-psychotic medicine, it can be “involuntarily administered” by hospital staff.

He is charged with the February 2010 stabbing death of 22-year-old Lammone Yommarath.

Webb was stationed in Kuwait during the 1990s before he was medically discharged.
