Pastor Terry Greer found not competent to stand trial

Pastor Terry Greer, who allegedly murdered his wife and shot his daughter, was found that Greer was not "competent to conform his conduct to the law".

In the Jan. 15 motion for a hearing on the evaluation of Terry Greer's mental state, Greer's lawyer asked that a judge find the 55-year-old clergyman was not "competent to conform his conduct to the law," dismiss the charges and have him transferred to a mental health facility.

The hearing is set for 1:30 p.m. Thursday before Jefferson County Circuit Judge Tommy Nail. Greer's trial on charges of murder and attempted murder is set for April 14.

I wonder if his job as a pastor had anything to do with it?
