Headland Man Accused of Killing His Mother May Not Stand Trial

Headland Man Accused of Stabbing Mother to Death could Undergoe Mental Competency Evaluation

In a recent development, a mental competency evaluation has been mandated for Headland resident, Alex McKay.

Accused of the tragic murder of his mother, McKay’s attorney secured this request to ascertain his ability to stand trial. Notably, McKay’s history of mental illness, compounded by reportedly being off his medication at the time of the incident, adds complexity to the case.
