Adams to Undergo Mental Health Evaluation


By WSIL Manager


BENTON -- A Franklin County man has been ordered to undergo a mental health evaluation.

John Adams is accused of shooting his wife in the back of the head in late March. She died the next day.

During a hearing Wednesday, a judge granted the motion for a fitness hearing.

Adams trial was set to start on July 8. That has now been postponed. He will be back in court later this month for an update on whether he's mentally fit to stand trial.
