SALT LAKE CITY -- The trial for a man accused of strangling his ex-girlfriend and driving her body to Missouri, has been postponed because he was found mentally incompetent.

The trial for Michael Doyel was scheduled to begin Monday but has now been postponed.

This is the second time Doyel has been found mentally incompetent. In January a judge ordered him held at the state hospital because Doyel was unable to understand the charges against him.

Doyel is charged with the murder and kidnapping of 50-year-old Deborah Jones.
