Accused killer of child is competent to stand trial

YOUNGSTOWN

A Mahoning County Common Pleas Court judge ruled this morning that the 21-year-old Youngstown man accused of murdering an 8-year-old boy is competent to stand trial in the capital case.

Judge R. Scott Krichbaum made the ruling today in the case of Shawn Wilson, who is set to be tried Jan. 14 on an aggravated murder charge with death-penalty specifications.

The ruling was based on a six-page report from psychiatrist Dr. Anil Nalluri, who recommended that Wilson understood the charges and was competent to stand trial.

Wilson is accused of indiscriminately shooting into an East Side residence Aug. 20 and fatally wounding Bryce Linebaugh, 8, who was sleeping in his bunk bed.
