PITTSBURGH (AP) - A couple who claims their son should have been committed the day before he stabbed his 11-year-old twin half brothers, killing one, have settled their lawsuit against a Pittsburgh psychiatric hospital.

An Allegheny County jury was seated to hear the lawsuit before the settlement was announced Tuesday between the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center’s Western Psychiatric and Clinic and Troy and Tiffany Hill, of Penn Hills.

Their son 26-year-old Troy Hill Jr. has yet to be found mentally competent to stand trial on charges he stabbed Tyrel and Tyron Hill, killing Tyron, on Aug. 28, 2007.

The settlement announced Tuesday is confidential.

The hospital’s attorney, John Conti, says he was “very grateful” to settle the case. The Hills’ attorney, Neil Rosen, says, “The wrong here has been righted.”
