MOSCOW, Idaho – A judge has order two teenagers to undergo psychological evaluations to see if they are competent to stand trial, according to Latah County prosecutors.
Attorneys for Matthew McKeeta, 18, and Keagan Tennant, 17, filed the motion for the evaluations earlier in the week. They both face charges stemming from the death of Tim Reeves.
Court documents said one of the suspects had been playing Russian roulette with Reeves before the incident. A witness told investigators Tennant had a rifle and Reeves had a pistol and they were pointing them at each other. The two the fled Idaho and were later captured in Ferry County, Washington.
Both teenagers remain the Latah County Jail on $500,000 bond. Their preliminary hearing is set for August 31.
