SHAWNEE, Okla. (AP) - A hearing is planned in November on the mental competency of a man who was found insane in the killing of an East Central University student.

Jerrod Murray was acquitted by reason of mental insanity in the December 2012 slaying of 18-year-old Generro Sanchez. Murray was ordered to a state mental treatment facility in Vinita earlier this year.

The Ada News reports (https://bit.ly/1Jrw2Ij ) that two doctors have since split on whether Murray is mentally ill and requires treatment. District Attorney Richard Smothermon requested additional mental evaluations from two doctors, and Pottawatomie County District Court Judge John G. Canavan Jr. approved it Wednesday.

Reports from the doctors are due by Oct. 26, and Murray is due in court for another hearing Nov. 5.
