Psychiatric officials say the man charged with killing his former football coach is competent to stand trial. But a Wayne County Circuit Judge will have the final say as to whether or not Clinton Skeens will go on trial.
73-year old Coach Jess "Scott" Jarrell was stabbed more than 40 times in his Wayne county home on December 31, 2010. Court records say Skeens admitted to the killing soon after it happened, but then later plead not guilty.
Skeens is in the Western Regional Jail after spending several weeks at a state psychiatric hospital in Weston. His trial is now tentatively set for the end of January.
