An attempted murder case in Augusta County was put on hold until experts determine if the defendant is fit to stand trial.

Investigators say Thomas Eugene Marhx shot his brother inside a home on May 23. He also faces malicious wounding and weapons charges.

His next hearing is scheduled for October 28 in Augusta County Circuit Court.
