June 21, 2019
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — An Oklahoma judge says a 19-year-old man accused of fatally shooting his parents and who is described by his attorney as "very mentally ill" isn't competent to be tried for first-degree murder.
Michael Elijah Walker was remanded to the custody of the Oklahoma Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services Wednesday and was committed to a state mental health hospital for treatment.
Walker is charged in the March 4 shooting deaths of 50-year-old Michael Logan Walker and 44-year-old Rachel Walker at their home in the Oklahoma City suburb of Edmond.
