DALLAS (AP) - A former Texas A&M; wide receiver has been found mentally incompetent to stand trial in the slaying of a man on a Dallas jogging trail.

Thomas Johnson was found incompetent by a Dallas County magistrate judge at a hearing Monday. His attorney, Jennifer Balido, tells The Dallas Morning News (https://bit.ly/1TAC1EC ) that Johnson will be sent to a state hospital for treatment and evaluation.

Balido said it’s likely Johnson will eventually “regain competency.”

Police have said Johnson has admitted to killing a jogger in a random act of rage on the White Rock Creek Trail in October.
