LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

Attorneys for a Lubbock man arrested for the murder of a Slaton woman in 2012 went before a grand jury to determine his competency to stand trial on Friday.

22-year-old Sampson Blake Oguntope was found incompetent to stand trial in April 2013 and was sent to a state hospital in Vernon, TX for further observation.

Oguntope's doctor found him to be competent in August, but Oguntope's attorneys filed a motion objecting those findings. A judge considered this objection on Friday and decided the issue will be decided in a jury trial. A jury will consider Oguntope's competence later this month.

Oguntope was arrested in February 2012 for the murder of 89-year-old Faye Gray in Slaton.

Gray's caretaker, 21-year-old Megan Moore, was also shot in the altercation, but was able to escape.

The jury trial will be held later this month.
