CHARLESTON, W.Va. - A Dunbar man who shot another man nine times has been determined not to be competent to stand trial.
Franklin Delano Beverly, 31, is charged with the malicious wounding and attempted first-degree murder of Joe Green, 21, also of Dunbar. The shooting occurred Oct. 11.
Police said Beverly retaliated when he believed Green struck his pregnant girlfriend in the belly.
On Monday, Kanawha Circuit Judge Duke Bloom ordered that Beverly be taken to Sharpe Hospital for treatment in an effort to restore competency. Attorneys said Beverly has been evaluated and is psychotic and refusing medication.
The judge will review Beverly's case in six months.
