VAN WERT — Shawn M. Jones, 36, of Van Wert, who was charged with the murder of his 84-year-old grandmother, Edna LaRue, of Van Wert, in October 2009, has been deemed competent to stand trial.



Jones appeared before Judge Charles D. Steele in Van Wert County Common Pleas Court for a competency hearing.



Jones’ attorney, Scott Gordon, asked the court for funds for a private evaluation of Jones, which was granted.



Jones’ case is set for jury trial Jan. 24. The trial is expected to be delayed until other matters are cleared up.



Jones was being held in the Van Wert County Jail in lieu of $500,000 bail.
