PROVO, Utah (AP) -- A competency evaluation has been ordered for an American Fork man accused of killing his brother, who suspected was planning to kill a young woman and sell her organs on the black market.

Thirty-one-year-old Eryk S. Drej was ordered by fourth District Judge Samuel McVey yesterday to undergo mental competency tests requested by public defender Thomas Means.

Drej, who is charged with murder, was arrested June first after being tackled in his driveway by an officer after police received a distress call. His brother, 25-year-old Lukasz Drej, was found shot to death in the back yard.

The defendant was being held in the Utah County Jail on 750 thousand dollars cash-only bail.
