CINCINNATI (AP) - A man accused of fatally shooting his two sisters and injuring another teenager as the three sat in a vehicle at the family’s suburban Cincinnati home has been found competent to stand trial.

Twenty-two-year-old Matthew Hayden of Colerain Township was found competent Wednesday in a Hamilton County court.

The judge agreed with a forensic psychologist who recommended that Hayden continue to be held at a state psychiatric hospital.

Prosecutors allege Hayden shot his 16- and 17-year-old sisters and wounded a 17-year-old boy in October. Authorities haven’t publicly discussed a possible motive.

Hayden is charged with aggravated murder and attempted aggravated murder. A message seeking comment was left Wednesday for his lawyer.

A trial date hasn’t been set. Hayden is due back in court next month.
