LIMA — A Lima man charged with murder in the stabbing death of his father this summer has been ruled incompetent to stand trial.
A report authored by a doctor at the Forensic Psychiatric Center of Western Ohio concluded that Timothy Youngblood is currently incompetent, but there is a “substantial probability” that he could be restored to competency within one year after undergoing treatment.
Allen County Common Pleas Court Judge Jeffrey Reed ordered the psychiatric report to remain confidential but did make an official ruling that the defendant is not competent to stand trial at the current time. Youngblood was ordered to be transferred to the Northwest Ohio Psychiatric Hospital in Toledo for treatment, with a report on his progress and competency to be submitted to the court within one year.
