Lawton, Okla._A Fort Sill soldier accused in a brutal home invasion has been found mentally incompetent to stand trial.

According to court records, a medical review at Taliaferro Mental Health Center found Richard Daly incompetent basically because "he does not trust his attorney".

Prosecutors say Daly and three other soldiers tied up 6 people in an apartment near 17th and "C" Avenue and shot four of them in September in of 2011.

The court finds that Daly is able to become competent if he receives treatment, therapy or training.

Daly has been committed to the Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse's legal custody. The court suggested he receive his treatment at a facility in Vinita. Daly's criminal proceedings have been delayed until a court finds him fit to stand trial.
