Oskaloosa (WIBW) - A man charged with killing a Jefferson County farmer will be heading back to Larned State Hospital for more evaluation.

A judge ruled Thursday that Adam Hooper will return to the security hospital for no more than 90 days. He will then return to the Jefferson County courthouse for another competency hearing.

A Larned psychologist testified Hooper currently couldn't understand the proceedings against him or participate in his defense.

Hooper is accused of killing Dale Kingsbury in August.
