Murder defendant incompetent to stand trial

A Lubbock murder defendant was ordered to get treatment at a state mental hospital for up to 120 days.

District Judge Trey McClendon ruled Jestin Hooker, 28, was incompetent to stand trial, but likely regain competency.

Hooker is accused of killing Lubbock attorney, Steven Wallace, 61, in July 2014.

The victim was beaten to death with a golf club in an apartment located in the back of his law office at 14th and Texas Avenue.
