EUGENE, Ore. (AP) - A man accused of stabbing his mother to death in Springfield has been found unfit to stand trial.

Sean Patrick Kelley made a brief appearance Wednesday in a courtroom at the Lane County Jail and was ordered to the Oregon State Hospital in Salem for treatment of an unspecified mental illness.

The Register-Guard reports (https://is.gd/rWuS00 ) if he becomes able to aid in his defense, he will be returned to Eugene for trial.

The 24-year-old is accused of killing Susan Carol Jackson in October at her home.

Kelley has a history of mental illness and was sent to the state hospital in 2008 after being found unfit for trial in a drug case in Douglas County.
