SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — A Utah man accused of kidnapping, raping and killing a six-year-old girl is still not competent for trial.
The Salt Lake Tribune reports 46-year-old Terry Black, who is accusing of taking Sierra Newbold from her home and killing her on June 26, 2012, was found not competent to stand trial in 2016.
A judge ordered him to be treated at the Utah State Hospital last year.
Attorneys set another review date for Aug. 21 at a Thursday review hearing in 3rd District Court.

Judge Douglas Hogan says Black must stay at the hospital as officials are working to restore his competency.
