The man accused of raping, murdering and burning the body of 15-year-old Nacole Winter and leaving her near Lake Shawnee last December will not stand trial for the crime.

Judge Thomas Conklin determined Christopher Dwayne Hall is mentally incompetent after reading a mental evaluation, and after making his observations.

Winters family sobbed when the decision was read.

Family members don't believe Hall is incompetent -- and feel he should stand trial. Hall will be sent to a state hospital. If he is ever deemed competent, he will stand trial for the crime.

His status will be updated in a January 3 hearing.
