ADRIAN (THE BLADE) - An Adrian teenager who is accused in the shooting deaths of his parents after they argued with him about using too many minutes on his cell phone, was found incompetent to stand trial on Monday in Lenawee County District Court.

Marshall Scott Sosby, 18, a high school junior at the time of the Sept. 23 shooting, is charged with murdering his parents, Michael and Carmen Sosby, at their Adrian home after the argument.

Judge Natalia Koselka accepted the recommendation from a psychologist at the Michigan Center For Forensic Psychiatry that Mr. Sosby is not competent to stand trial on 10 felony charges, including two open murder counts for the death of each parent.

Judge Koselka also followed the recommendation of the psychiatrist and sent Mr. Sosby to the state psychiatric facility for treatment.

The teenager was ordered to return to court on April 20.

Mr. Sosby, who was 17 when the shooting occurred, also faces one count each
of assault with a dangerous weapon and interfering with a police
investigation and four counts of felony firearms.
