TOLEDO, Ohio (WTVG) - James Hines, the Toledo man accused to shooting his mother in the head before fleeing her home, has been deemed incompetent to stand trial.
Hines' mother, Joycelyn Gordon, 73, survived that attack after calling 9-1-1.
Hines was initially held on a $500,000 bond back in February and issued a No Contact order to keep him from seeing his mother.
Now, he will spend up to a year in the Northwest Ohio Psychiatric Hospital after an evaluation deemed him incompetent for trial in the case. According to court filings, the decision was made after considering "the dangerousness of defendant to himself and others, the need for security, and the type of crime involved." His bond was revoked and he was ordered transferred to the hospital.
The court also "found that there is substantial probability that the defendant will become competent to stand trial within one year if provided with a course of treatment."
