Prosecutors say a man accused of fatally shooting a sheriff in 2013 is returning to a psychiatric hospital for further evaluation.

Kanawha County Prosecutor Chuck Miller tells The Herald-Dispatch that a Cabell County circuit judge Thursday returned Tennis Melvin Maynard to William R. Sharpe Hospital, with an update expected in 90 days. The court hearing was closed to the media.

  A West Virginia man has been found incompetent to stand trial in the fatal shooting of Mingo County Sheriff Eugene Crum.

Cabell County Circuit Judge Paul Ferrell on Thursday ordered Tennis Melvin Maynard committed to a state mental health facility for life.

Crum was killed in April 2013 while parked in his cruiser in downtown Williamson.

Farrell had ordered a mental health evaluation in November 2013 for Maynard. Last February, Farrell indefinitely postponed Maynard's murder trial.
