WOOD COUNTY -- The man accused of killing two of his former co-workers at a Perrysburg Township trucking company has been found competent to stand trial. Wood County Common Pleas Judge Robert Pollex ruled Friday afternoon that Calvin Neyland is competent to stand trial on two murder charges.

This was Neyland's third competency hearing. The first found him unable to understand the charges against him and assist in his defense. The second said he was competent. At this third and final hearing, the judge listened to an hour of testimony from three psychologists and ruled he is competent to stand trial.

There is no trial date yet. A pretrial hearing is set for May 1 where the judge most likely will set a trial date.
