Lamoine Wiebe is still awaiting a preliminary hearing, despite a number of attempts to begin the first-degree murder case against him.
The latest court proceeding was this week, with his preliminary hearing continued indefinitely while Wiebe receives mental health treatment.
“The case has been continued to an open date until he is stabilized,” said county prosecutor David Yoder.
Initially Wiebe had been found mentally incompetent to stand trial, and was then taken to Larned for further evaluation. While there, he was judged to be competent when taking medications.
“That not working as well as intended,” Yoder said.
Wiebe was charged in March of this year with murder, accused of killing his 78-year old father, Richard Wiebe.
