A judge ruled a local resident accused of driving a car into a lake while his mother was a passenger is incompetent to stand trial

Lawrence, KS – According to the court documents, a Douglas County judge ruled earlier this week that 22-year-old Jeremy Williams should receive treatment at Larned State Hospital.

The suspect is charged with second-degree attempted murder.

Prosecutors allege that the suspect drove into Lone Star Lake on Feb. 25.

A caller who reported seeing the car go into the lake rescued Williams’ mother, who could not escape because she had a broken leg.

His case will remain pending while he receives treatment.
