SHERIDAN, Wyo. (AP) - A man has been deemed competent to stand trial for a fatal shooting at a Sheridan County home.

Wyoming State Hospital officials say Paul Brookhouse will be mentally fit to proceed with the case only as long as he remains medicated. An arraignment has not yet been scheduled.

The Sheridan Press reports (https://goo.gl/wUE3lc ) Brookhouse is facing a second-degree murder charge in the June 12, 2014, death of 62-year-old James Lee Drake, who had two gunshot wounds to the side and one to the head.

Investigators say Brookhouse told officers who arrived at the home that a man inside had been shot and “I’m the one that did it.”

An arraignment is expected to be held via video or phone conference.
