Garland Allen found competent to stand trial

ALTUS, Okla._The man who led Altus police to the spot where he buried his ex-wife's body more than a decade ago has been found competent to stand trial.

A judge made that ruling Monday afternoon following a hearing for Garland Allen. A decision was originally scheduled for last month but was postponed because of a delay in receiving the results of Allen's competency tests. Allen confessed to police last December that he killed his ex-wife, Tracy, in 2001 and buried her near Tom Steed Lake.

His preliminary hearing is set for July 22 at the Jackson County Courthouse.
