MOAB, Utah (AP) -- A judge ruled a Colorado man was competent to stand trial for allegedly stabbing to death a tourist in Utah.
46-year-old Graham Austin is accused of flagging down a car on a highway near Moab last May and attacking retired Navy Commander Walter Pratt along state Route 128.
Seventh District Judge Lyle Anderson set a February 2nd trial. Austin is charged with first-degree felony murder and aggravated robbery.
Prosecutors allege he pulled Pratt from the truck and fled in the 58-year-old man's vehicle.
