TEXARKANA, Texas -- A Texas man accused of fatally shooting a sheriff's deputy at a county courthouse has been ruled incompetent to stand trial.

Tucker Strickland is charged with capital murder in the 2011 slaying of 54-year-old deputy Sherri Jones.

State District Judge Leon Pesek Monday ordered the 23-year-old Strickland confined to a state mental hospital until he's competent to be tried.

Authorities say the Texarkana man overpowered Jones as she accompanied him to a competency hearing at the Bowie County courthouse where he was accused of assaulting his mother. Prosecutors say Strickland took Jones' gun and shot her in the head.

Strickland fled in a county transport van and was captured about 30 minutes later in Arkansas.

Strickland is held in the Fannin County Jail in Bonham under $3 million bond.

1) why do i have to go to a Miami, Florida website to get news on New Boston, Texas.

2) Strickland was competent enough to pull a gun out of a holster. He was competent enough to kill another person. He was competent enough to steal a vehicle and function for a full half hour before he was caught.

3) How do we start a petition to get State District Judge Leon Pesek fired from his job?

You may want to leave #3 alone. You could vanish without a trace. Will be eager to know how it works out for you. Best of luck and kuddos.

i dont think that is going to happen. a head of cattle that will eventually have to pay old age medical expenses is a cash cow source of revenue. the system isnt likely to want to get rid of someone who actually has some coin that will eventually go to the hospital physicians and pharmacists. i like to think that even now, there is some newborn that will eventually become a hospital doctor. what little money i have is being patiently invested so he can take it all from me in thirty years.

i have not been altogether pleased with the slow performance of local authorities 'protect and serve' motto, but i will acknowledge that if a shackled criminal takes a deputies life with her own sidearm, in a county court building no less, then that guy deserves to get the chair or the hangmans noose. no wonder they wont help me, dayum the system wont even back the deputies and officers when they get taken advantage of. what less of a chance do we common folk have in comparison to that.
Ummm What

Your post is incoherent. Are you brain damaged or are you just on some mind altering drug?
