Two murder suspects will undergo mental competency exams

Two women charged in a Pike County murder case will undergo mental competency exams.

Cynthia Ryan and Shannon Turner are two of the four suspects accused of killing Millard Thornhill and then setting his home on fire back in May.

The judge ordered the exams to see if the women are competent for trial.

Two men are also charged in the case, Jeffrey Lowe and Randy Thomas.

The trial is scheduled for February.
