YORK TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - A 25-year-old man has been found competent to stand trial in the fatal stabbings of a 12-year-old boy and his adult half brother during a southeastern Michigan home invasion.

The Ann Arbor News reports (https://bit.ly/1ND56fY ) that a competency hearing for Joseph Hall was held Thursday.

Hall is charged with two counts of murder, three counts of assault with intent to murder and first-degree home invasion. Jesse Spurlock also is charged with murder and home invasion in the case.

Timber Brown and 26-year-old Jon Brown were killed June 13 at a York Township home, south of Ann Arbor. Three others were stabbed.

Police believe Hall and the 34-year-old Spurlock went to the home with the intent to rob Hall’s drug dealer.

A preliminary examination is scheduled for Sept. 9.
