OZARK, Ark. (AP) – A judge has ordered that an Arkansas man accused in the shooting deaths of his parents undergo an examination to determine if he is mentally fit to stand trial.

The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette reports that Franklin County Circuit Judge William Pearson on Thursday signed the order for the mental evaluation of 23-year-old Dustin Jordan.

Jordan is charged with two counts of first-degree murder in the Oct. 8 shooting deaths of Michael and Kathy Jordan at their rural home south of Ozark.

Jordan’s attorneys say in court documents that a psychiatrist has examined Jordan and found he is “actively psychotic and delusional.”

Jordan was arrested just before midnight ct. 9. near Edmond, Oklahoma, in his parents’ truck, which had been reported stolen after their bodies were discovered.
