Accused killer found mentally incompetent

Posted: Updated:

The man accused of intentionally running down and killing Lansing firefighter Dennis Rodeman has been ruled Mentally Incompetent.

A judge says 23 year old Grant Taylor can't help with his own defense and will be returned to a state psychiatric center for treatment.

Prosecutors say doctors have up to 15 months to restore Taylor's sanity before murder charges would be dropped.

Firefighter Rodeman was standing in a Lansing street collecting money for charity when he was struck and killed last September.
