The man accused of shooting and killing Sgt. Collin Rose has been found incompetent to stand trial for murder.

Raymond Durham had been charged with first-degree murder in the death of Wayne State University police Sgt. Collin Rose. On Wednesday, a judge ruled that Durham was not competent to stand trial for Rose's death. 

Durham has been undergoing psychiatric treatment while in custody. Shortly after the Wednesday hearing, the prosecutor's office requested a third evaluation. The judge granted the request but an exact date has not been set.

That psychiatric treatment will continue for Durham. 

Durham was arrested last March and was charged with shooting two Detroit police officers. He was found incompetent in that case as well.

His family also told FOX 2 that Durham was mentally ill. Emory Durham said last march that his brother was injured in 1976 while working at a steel company when a piece of steel fell onto his head. He said Raymond hasn't been the same since - hallucinating - then, getting into drugs.

"My mother and father always tried to get him committed," Emory Durham said. "They wouldn't take him, he had to submit himself."

Instead, despite his family wanting to help, Emory Durham says his brother lived in random vacant homes. Neighbors frequently saw him riding his bike and often, walking and talking to himself.

"If he shot at police, in his mind he probably thought he was shooting at aliens or something," said a neighbor. "Because he really has a mental problem."
