A man charged with fatally shooting a co-worker on an Overland Park school playground has been found mentally competent to stand trial.
Anthony D. Grable is charged in Johnson County District Court with first-degree murder in the killing last July of Todd Davis.
Grable, 33, of Kansas City, and Davis, 48, of Lee’s Summit, were part of a crew working outside Sunrise Point Elementary School, 15800 Roe Ave., when Grable allegedly pulled a gun and shot Davis and another co-worker who survived.
After fleeing the shooting scene, Grable allegedly committed two armed carjackings before he was arrested later that day.
A mental evaluation was ordered for Grable to determine if he was competent to stand trial. Based on the results of the examination, a judge on Monday found him competent.
A preliminary hearing is scheduled for Feb. 4.
In addition to the murder charge, Grable is charged with attempted first-degree murder, three counts of aggravated assault, two counts of aggravated robbery and burglary.
