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.
Thursday, Marhx's attorney requested he undergo a competency evaluation, and the court approved to delay the case until the report is in.
His next hearing is scheduled for October 28 in Augusta County Circuit Court.
