The man accused of killing and dismembering his disabled, seven-year old son in Thibodaux is now competent to stand trial.

That’s according to the mental facility that treated Jeremiah Wright.

However, Wright’s attorney says a judge must make the final determination.

He adds, Wright was determined to be competent by the hospital about a year ago, but a judge disagreed.

A hearing date for the latest finding could be set for later this month.
