ELKINS, W.Va. (AP) - A judge has found a Randolph County man competent to stand trial on charges of killing his wife.

Media outlets report that 84-year-old Theodore Newlon is set to stand trial in August on murder and wanton endangerment charges.

Randolph County Circuit Court Judge Thomas Kaedle scheduled the trial after ruling on Friday that Newlon is competent.

Newlon is accused of fatally shooting 68-year-old Dora Newlon in the couple’s home near Gilman in 2012.
