SHANE FOSTER IS NOW COMPETENT




I've been following this one for awhile so, I thought I would bring you the update.

TO ORIGINAL ARTICLE
COVINGTON, La. (AP) — An alleged Ku Klux Klan member has been found competent to stand trial in connection with the killing of an Oklahoma woman who reportedly tried to back out of a Klan initiation ceremony last year in St. Tammany Parish.


Dr. Michelle Garriga, who works in the Eastern Louisiana Mental Health System's forensic division and was appointed by the court to examine 21-year-old Shane Foster, said Tuesday that Foster now understands legal procedures well enough to proceed. He faces a charge of obstruction of justice.


Foster is the son of Raymond "Chuck" Foster, the alleged imperial wizard of the Bogalusa Sons of Dixie Knights. Chuck Foster is charged with second-degree murder in the Nov. 9, 2008, shooting death of Klan recruit Cynthia Lynch. Authorities have said the slaying occurred after Lynch told him she wanted to go home.
