(KSL News) -- Lawyers for a Bountiful man accused of shooting his ex-wife and father-in-law claim he may not be competent to stand trial.

David Drommond's defense team has asked a judge to grant a mental competency evaluation before he is arraigned in December.

Drommond is accused of fatally shooting his wife when she came to pick up the couple's children. He also allegedly shot the woman's father in the stomach.

Prosecutors say they may seek the death penalty.
