Nathan Calvert murder trial delayed pending psychiatric evaluation

Alleged Dixon murderer, Nathan Calvert will not have his trial as originally scheduled. Calvert remains at the psychiatric hospital in Warm Springs pending evaluation of his mental competency to stand trail. Judge Kim Christopher ordered such evaluation, but it was not completed by April 16, so Calvert will continue his evaluation there. As a result of this, Calvert’s scheduled trial will have to be delayed. Such an evaluation will determine whether Calvert is mentally competent to stand trial under the eyes of the law. If Calvert is found competent, he will return  to Thompson Falls to face deliberate homicide charges. If Calvert is not found to be mentally competent, he may spend several years of his life in a mental institution instead of face criminal charges.
