BROOMFIELD, Colo. (AP) - A judge has ordered a competency evaluation for a man accused of using an ax to kill his 4-year-old nephew in a Colorado home.

The Broomfield Enterprise reports https://goo.gl/gBn39M 25-year-old Emanuel Doll’s preliminary hearing has been vacated, and a review of his evaluation is set for early September.

Doll was arrested April 27 after the boy was found dead with what Broomfield police spokeswoman Joleen Reefe has described as a “massive amount of trauma.”

Doll’s parents, who were in the home at the time, told investigators their grandson went down to the basement where Doll was and then they heard loud noises that sounded like a pillowcase loaded with items hitting the floor. When they went downstairs, they found the child dead with an ax nearby.

Doll was found in the backyard with blood on his clothes.
