WEST VALLEY CITY -- It has been more than a year since the crime, and this morning Charles Gunkel was finally arraigned on charges he murdered his ex-girlfriend.

Charles Gunkel has been undergoing a series of mental competency evaluations since the stabbing death of Molly Robbins last summer. Two weeks ago, those evaluations wrapped up and Gunkel was found competent to stand trial.

Gunkel is charged with aggravated murder, which could result in the death penalty if he is convicted. Prosecutors have not said if they will try this as a death penalty case.
