OLDSMAR, Fla. (AP) -- A Tampa Bay area teen accused of killing his mother and her boyfriend has been found incompetent to stand trial.
Pinellas County prosecutors said at a hearing Wednesday that three doctors evaluated 18-year-old Benjamin Bishop and concluded he's not able to communicate with lawyers and doesn't know what's going on.
The Tampa Bay Times reports that Bishop will be sent to a mental facility for treatment until he is deemed competent and able to stand trial.
Authorities say Bishop shot his mother, Imari Shibata, and her boyfriend, Kelley Allen, with a shotgun in October while they lay in bed at their Oldsmar home.
Bishop had previously been diagnosed with schizophrenia. He had also pleaded guilty in the past to a misdemeanor battery charge for trying to strangle his mother.
