Man accused of killing mother competent for trial

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — A Sun Prairie man accused of killing his mother with a sword has been ruled competent to stand trial.

Matthew Skalitzy was found incompetent last October and sent to a state mental health institution. Skalitzy is accused of decapitating his mother, 68-year-old Jane Skalitzky, on Sept. 11. He’s charged with first-degree intentional homicide.

A judge in Dane County Monday decided Skalitzy was competent to proceed and ordered him to continue taking his medication.

Prosecutors say Skakiltzy was mentally ill and saw people, including his mother, as inhuman clones.
