Triple Murder Suspect Ruled Incompetent for Trial

Posted:

MANASSAS, Va. (AP) - A judge has ruled that an illegal immigrant charged in a triple murder last year is incompetent to stand trial.

Thirty-nine-year-old Jose Oswaldo Reyes Alfaro faces a possible death penalty for the slayings of his friend Julio Cesar Ulloa, his former girlfriend Brenda Ashcraft and her son William Ashcraft in Manassas in February 2011.

Prince William Circuit Court Judge Richard Potter ruled that Reyes Alfaro is incompetent after hearing testimony from a court-appointed psychiatrist Nov. 29. The judge ordered that he receive treatment to restore his competency.

Reyes Alfaro is also accused of attacking a 77-year-old woman with a machete. She survived.
