TULSA, Okla. (AP) - A competency review hearing has been postponed for a Tulsa man accused of first-degree murder and hate crime charges in the killing of his Lebanese neighbor.

Court records show the hearing for Stanley Majors was rescheduled Friday for Nov. 16. Majors had been due in district court next week.

Majors is also charged with being a felon in possession of a firearm and threatening a violent act in the Aug. 12 fatal shooting of 37-year-old Khalid Jabara.

Majors has pleaded not guilty to all of the charges.

Authorities say Majors killed Jabara after bombarding him with racial insults in a feud with Jabara’s family that lasted several years.

Court records show Majors‘ case is the 17th since 2008 in which Tulsa County prosecutors have filed a hate crime charge.
