A Randolph County judge decided that a murder suspect could be mentally competent to stand trial in about three months on Wednesday.
Last year, Theodore Newlon supposedly killed his wife, Dora.
Since then, he's been at Sharpe's Hospital, and the defense has argued he isn't competent to stand trial.
In December, the judge sided with the defense, but now they'll revisit the case in three months to decide if Newlon can go to trial.
