ALLEGAN, Mich. (AP) -

A 53-year-old man accused of pouring acid on his girlfriend has been found incompetent to stand trial.

WOOD-TV reports the case against Gregory Marsman is on hold while he undergoes treatment. His lawyer had requested the evaluation. The case can move forward if Marsman is found competent after treatment.

Marsman has been charged with torture, home invasion and domestic violence and earlier denied breaking into the home in Allegan County's Ganges Township.

The victim, 54-year-old Sheryl Keech, was hospitalized with serious burns after the March 16 attack. The station reports that investigators allege Marsman made statements about Keech's son being possessed, and "demonic" letters were found in Marsman's bedroom.
