Judge Orders Another Competency Hearing for Racine County Man



A man, who's competent to stand trail on child pornography charges in Racine County, may just be competent to stand trial for murder charges in Rock County as well.

In Rock County Court on Tuesday, a judge ordered another competency evaluation for 49-year-old Keith Abbott, who's accused of killing 33-year-old Kristin Miller in 2011, and dumping her body in rural Rock County.

That same judge found that Abbot was not competent to stand trial in February, however a Racine County Judge recently found that he was competent to stand trial on child pornography charges there.

Prosecutors still have to decide whether to use the same doctor who testified in the child pornography case, or seek another evaluation.
