Central Michigan University shooting suspect unfit for trial


Attorney, Joshua Blanchard said his client, the 19-year-old student accused of killing his parents at Central Michigan University was found incompetent to stand trial.

Blanchard told MLive.com on Wednesday that Jmes Davis Jr. will receive treatment in an attempt to have him regain competency.

Officials say Davis Jr. Shot his parents, James and Diva Davis, of Plainfield, Illinois in his dorm room on March 2. He was captured after a 16-hour manhunt in Mount Pleasant, Michigan. He's been charged with two counts of open murder and a firearm violation.

The night before the shootings, Davis Jr. told police someone was out to kill him. He showed erratic behavior that police suspected was drug-induced.
