A Lincoln County judge on Monday dropped a 75-year old Troy man’s murder charge, after he was deemed unfit for trial. Deputies say James Bonfias called dispatchers to report his daughter died during the night back in January.
According to the Lincoln County Sheriff’s office, response crews found the woman dead of an apparent gunshot wound. Bonifias had told authorities he and his daughter had been discussing financial issues.
Back in March, a psychiatrist said Bonifas couldn’t help his attorney prepare his defense.
