A judge decides a man accused of killing an eastern Kentucky police chief has a high enough IQ to face the death penalty.
That ruling came Monday in the case of Jamie Barnett.
Barnett's sister testified during Monday’s hearing telling the judge Barnett has had mental problems dating back to childhood.
That did not sway the judge who ruled in favor of the prosecution.
Barnett is accused of killing Clay City Police Chief Randy Lacy in June of last year.
Jury selection will begin Tuesday in Montgomery County.
