In rural Douglas County, a man charged with the murder of his ex-girlfriend has been declared competent to stand trial. Dalton Potter, accused of killing Alyssa Longwell in January, had previously refused to participate in forensic interviews. However, a licensed psychologist appointed by the court has determined that Potter is capable of understanding the legal proceedings against him.

In court documents summarizing the mental evaluation, the psychologist noted that Potter denied having any thoughts of self-harm, suicide, or harm to others. She also stated that Potter does not appear to present an imminent risk of danger to himself or others.

This ruling clears the way for Potter to assist in his own defense, and he is scheduled to hear a multitude of charges against him during his arraignment on March 14th.
