LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - A judge finds that Jonathan Ivins, 20, of Lubbock County is not competent to stand trial. Ivins is accused of creating a bomb hoax at the Lubbock Preston Smith International Airport back in May. 

Since the judge's ruling on Wednesday, both prosecutors and the defense filed a joint motion to have Ivins hospitalized. The judge agreed to do so for up to 120 days. 

Ivins will be examined again by a psychologist or psychiatrist "to determine whether there is a substantial probability that in the foreseeable future the defendant will attain the capacity to permit the proceedings herein to go forward."
