A judge ruled Thursday that Kenneth Lankford, the man accused in a deadly shooting in Black Forest, is competent to stand trial.

Lankford is accused of going on a shooting spree in November 2013 killing his 51-year-old wife Terry and 52-year-old Carol Fowler. Fowler's husband Thomas Fowler was reportedly shot in the face, but survived.

The judge scheduled a preliminary hearing for May to see if there is enough evidence to try Lankford for the murders.
