WASHINGTON — A judge ruled Friday the teenager accused of killing a tourist from Denver in Washington, D.C. is incompetent to stand trial.
Michael Davis, 19, is charged with first-degree murder in the April killing of 66-year-old Gary Dederichs. Police say Dederichs was hit in the head with a hammer or similar weapon while he walked alone in a residential neighborhood.
The suspect is the younger brother of NFL players Vernon and Vontae Davis.
Michael Davis also faces charges for two attacks in which both victims survived. He’s also a suspect in two additional assaults. All of them happened over a 3-day period near his home.
The judge’s ruling of incompetent for trial is based on a psychiatrist’s report. David will undergo treatment at a psychiatric hospital.
