Competency restoration ordered for Edinburg teen charged in stabbing
WOODSTOCK — Circuit Judge Dennis L. Hupp on Wednesday ordered that competency restoration efforts begin for the Edinburg teen accused of stabbing a mother and her two daughters in May.
Samual Jacob Homer, 18, was found incompetent to stand trial on Nov. 29. Hupp required Assistant Public Defender Peter McDermott to verify who would conduct the competency restoration services. Northwestern Community Services will do the restoration on an outpatient basis while Homer is in custody at Rappahannock-Shenandoah-Warren Regional Jail. Commonweath’s Attorney Amanda Wiseley explained that the agency will provide treatment for Homer at RSW.
A hearing was set for Feb. 7 in Shenandoah County Circuit Court to review the progress of those restoration efforts.
