WASHINGTON (AP) — A District of Columbia man charged with killing one man and assaulting two other people in separate attacks has been deemed temporarily incompetent to stand trial.

D.C. Superior Court Judge Robert Morin accepted the recommendation Friday of a clinical psychologist who had evaluated Michael Davis.

The 19-year-old Davis is the brother of NFL players Vernon and Vontae Davis. He is charged with first-degree murder in last month’s death of 66-year-old Gary Dederichs, who was visiting from Colorado and was struck on the head while walking alone.

Davis has also been charged in two nonfatal attacks and is suspected in two additional assaults. All occurred over a 3-day period.

A psychologist who interviewed Davis said he showed no understanding of the court process.
