HOUSTON - A court has ordered a psychiatric evaluation for the man accused in the shooting death of Harris County Sheriff's Deputy Darren Goforth, sources told KPRC 2 News.
The evaluation was ordered after Shannon Miles’ lawyer claimed it was impossible for him to communicate meaningfully with his client. Miles is "incompetent" to stand trial, the lawyer said.
