LONGVIEW, Texas (AP) — A psychologist has determined a suspect in a 2013 stabbing attack at an East Texas hospital that left a nurse and a visitor dead is competent to stand trial.

The Longview News-Journal reports Kyron Rayshawn Templeton received psychiatric treatment and underwent another mental evaluation last month. Templeton on Monday was transferred from a mental health facility to jail in Longview, where he's charged with capital murder and aggravated assault.

Templeton was twice ruled incompetent in the November 2013 attacks at then-Good Shepherd Medical Center in Longview. Police say Templeton was at the center, where his mother was scheduled for surgery, and told an officer he thought "they" were trying to kill her.

Police say 57-year-old nurse Gail Sandidge and 82-year-old visitor Harris Teel were fatally stabbed. Three others were wounded.
