Defense attorneys for Sharpe expect Judge Trudy White give a final ruling on Sharpe’s competency on January 30.

Doctors are trying to restore Sharpe at a mental hospital so he can be competent to stand trial.

Sharpe also faces charges in East Feliciana Parish of first-degree murder charge for the death of Brad DeFranceshi, second-degree murder for the death of Tommy Bass, and attempted first-degree murder in the shooting of Buck Hornsby. All of those alleged crimes happened in 2017.

Sharpe has been ruled incompetent to stand trial for the charges in East Feliciana Parish.
