Allen's competency hearing set for April

Posted: Updated:

ALTUS, Okla._An Altus man who confessed to killing his wife and burying her body at a camp site near Tom Steed Lake twelve years ago has requested a competency review.

Garland Allen's preliminary hearing was set for Monday, March 31, but has now been postponed until his mental competency can be determined. Allen led police to his ex-wife's grave just south of Roosevelt in Kiowa County last December. He's charged with second-degree murder.

Allen's review is set for April 28.
