JACKSON, Miss. (WTVA) -- The Mississippi Supreme Court has ordered a circuit court judge to hold a competency hearing for a man serving on Death Row.
Terry Pitchford, 27, of Grenada was sentenced to die for the 2004 shooting death of Ruben Britt at the Crossroads Grocery in Grenada County.
Authorities say Britt was shot several times with his own gun.
Pitchford and another man were later arrested after authorities found the firearm in Pitchford's car.
On Thursday, the state's highest court ordered the case back to Grenada County Circuit Court to determine if Pitchford is confident to stand trial.
