Man charged in 2001 Auburn murder declared competent to stand trial
Arthur Collins, 45, was found competent by a state psychiatrist to stand trial for the 2001 slaying of George Jodoin, of Auburn. Collins is shown here after his arrest in May 2012. (JAMES A. KIMBLE/FILE PHOTO)
In April 2010, Collins was diagnosed with psychological and behavioral abnormalities associated with dysfunction of the brain, according to the defense.
McHugh gave public defenders until July 1 to have their psychiatrist review the state's findings, meet with Collins and then tell the defense whether he agrees with Comiskey's finding.
The judge would hear testimony from Comiskey and the defense's psychiatrist, Dr. Philip Kinsler, and legal arguments before making a decision.
Collins is being held without bail at Rockingham County Jail. He faces a mandatory sentence of life in prison without the possibility of parole if he is convicted of first-degree murder.
