Man facing murder charges found incompetent to stand trial

Posted: Updated:
CLARE COUNTY, MI (WNEM) -

A man facing murder charges after a woman was found dead and his father was severely injured was found incompetent to stand trial.

Scott Pouillon, 43, of Owosso was arraigned on March 16 for first-degree premeditated murder and assault with intent to murder.

On March 15 the Clare County Central Dispatch received a call of a male assaulting the caller and damaging a residence at the Greenwood Township home, police said.

When police arrived to the scene they discovered 64-year-old Cheryl Pouillon's body. They also discovered Donald Pouillon, 65, was severely injured from knife wounds, police said. The victims are husband and wife and are both from Harrison.

Donald Pouillon was taken to a medical facility for treatment.

The police received information about the suspect and the vehicle that was involved in the incident. The vehicle was located on US-127 in Isabella County, police said.

Scott Pouillon, Donald Pouillon's son, was arrested and lodged in the Clare County Jail. He is being held on a $1.5 million bond.

On May 13 Scott Pouillon was found incompetent to stand trial. The court found there is a chance the defendant will attain competence to stand trial if he undergoes treatment.

He has been ordered to undergo treatment  at a mental health facility recommended by the Center for Forensic Psychiatry.

Scott Pouillon will be confined to the facility and its grounds.

The facility will have to provide a written report every 90 days to the court, prosecutor and defense attorney while the defendant is in treatment.
