SALISBURY, Md. (AP) — A 26-year-old man has been found competent to stand trial in the slaying of his grandmother.

Rodney Miles, 26, of Salisbury is charged with first-degree murder in the killing of his grandmother, 87-year-old Catherine Slemons, in January. Slemons was found strangled in her home.

Police did not give a motive for the killing but said Miles stole his grandmother’s wallet.

The Daily Times reports that a trial date has not been set.
