Kinney Ruled Incompetent Will Not Stand Trial

February 7, 2009 12:00:00 AM PST
A judge has found a Fresno defense attorney incompetent to stand trial. Police arrested Scott Kinney last year. He is the son of the late Ernest Kinney, a well known defense attorney.

Family friends said Scott's mental health declined following his father's death. Investigators accuse Kinney of assaulting a woman and also striking a man with a hammer.

Kinney will return to court later this month when a judge could send him to Atascadero State Hospital.
