What ever happened to Roger Smith, is he still in jail or in a mental institution?

In October, 2005 police say Roger Smith hit and killed 17-year old Gary
Catron while he was riding his bicycle in Monticello in Wayne County.
Police also say Smith was driving drunk when he hit Catron. He was
charged with murder and pleaded not guilty. A judge ordered him to
undergo a mental evaluation.

That's where this case ends. The Wayne County Commonwealth's Attorney says Smith underwent a competency hearing and was found to be incompetent to stand trial. He has been committed to a mental institution.
