ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — A judge has ruled that an inmate accused of fatally stabbing a correctional officer in 2006 is still incompetent to stand trial.

An Anne Arundel Circuit Court judge ordered Tuesday that  Lamarr Harris, 42, be treated at a state forensic psychiatric hospital, The Capital of Annapolis reports.

Harris and another inmate were charged with first-degree murder in the stabbing death of Cpl. David McGuinn, 42, at the now-closed Maryland House of Correction in Jessup. Harris was first found incompetent to stand trial in June 2012.

The state has five years to try a person once he is ruled incompetent. The cases are reviewed annually.

The other inmate, Lee Edward Stephens, was convicted of first-degree murder in February 2012 and sentenced to life without parole.
