Report: Conway Suspect Not Mentally Fit For Trial

A report from an Arkansas State Hospital psychologist has found that a man accused of shooting a woman in a Conway Wal-Mart is mentally unfit to stand trial.

A judge had ordered the mental evaluation for 30-year-old Myron Terrell, who is charged with attempted capital murder in the shooting that wounded a customer at the store. Authorities say Terrell was a maintenance worker at the store and he opened fire on the woman as she stood in the checkout line.

The victim, Lori Martin, tells the Log Cabin Democrat that she'd never seen or heard of Terrell before the Feb. 1 shooting.

The forensic report says Terrell's "ability to assist in his defense is concerning."

Terrell remains confined in the State Hospital and is due in court Monday.
