LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

A judge has ordered a competency exam for a Lubbock man charged with murdering his wife.

65-year-old Danny Mack Jordan was indicted by a Lubbock grand jury back in June.

Jordan is currently behind bars.

Police found the body of Jordan's wife, Shelley, in North Lubbock County on May 29.

The victim's son-in-law, Sean Huntsman, says Danny Jordan was declared mentally incompetent three and a half years ago.

Then, in 2011, Shelley Jordan was appointed as her husband's legal guardian.

Huntsman says doctors believed that Danny Jordan had some form of dementia.
