DECATUR, AL (WAFF) -

A Certified Forensic Examiner has determined one of the three suspects in the Decatur Krystal shootings is mentally competent to stand trial.

An attorney for Jordaan Creque requested a mental evaluation.

According to court documents, Creque's mother claims her son fell out of a tree as a child and landed on his head. Those documents state Creque may have "significant psychological, neurological, and/or developmental deficiencies."

According to the order signed by Morgan County Judge Glenn Thompson, the doctor who performed the mental evaluation determined Creque is competent to stand trial and was not suffering from a severe mental disease or defect at the time of the shootings.

Creque has 10 days to inform the court he plans to contest the findings. If he chooses not to contest the findings, the court will official declare him competent to stand trial.

Creque, Ezekiel Gholston, and Cassandra Eldred are charged with capital murder. Investigators say they shot and killed Jessie Aguilar and Jeff Graff while robbing the restaurant.

Creque's trial is scheduled for September 16. Trial dates have not been set for Gholston or Eldred.
