GRENADA, Miss. (AP) - Grenada County Circuit Court records show one of the men facing a capital murder charge in the death of Grenada Police Capt. John Wayne Haddock has been competent to stand trial.

Documents filed this past week show Kyle David Wendt was examined by a forensic psychologist at the Mississippi State Hospital in Whitfield and found competent.

A trial date is pending.

Authorities say Wendt was driving the vehicle that struck Haddock as the officer attempted to lay spikes across Highway 8 West to stop a high-speed chase, on Oct. 7, 2011.

Also facing a capital murder charge is Thomas Leland Lee of West Monroe, La. Wendt is from Colorado Springs, Colo. Both are being held without bond in the county jail.
