LAFOURCHE PARISH, LA (NBC33) — The man accused of killing and dismembering his 7-year-old special needs son two years ago has been declared competent by state doctors.
Jeremiah Wright will return to a Lafourche Parish courtroom later this month when the First-Degree Murder case against him will move forward.
While state doctors have declared him competent, defense attorneys are questioning the findings.
