WILTON - A judge ruled that the Wilton man accused of killing his own father is competent to stand trial.

Detectives say Aaron Ramsey claims he heard voices in his head when he beat and stabbed Edward Ramsey in their home last month.

His lawyer says Ramsey understands the charges against them and is able to help with his defense.

He is due back in court next month.
