Man accused of killing 5 to have another psych test

Wednesday, June 26, 2002

WARRENSBURG, Mo. -- A man accused of killing his wife and four children more than two years ago will undergo yet another psychological test to determine his mental fitness, a judge has ruled.

Monday's ruling set up the latest in a series of competency tests Raymond E. Wood has taken since the February 2000 shooting rampage. Wood has been held at the Fulton State Mental Hospital.

The evaluation is expected to take place within 60 days.

Woods, 39, is accused of killing his wife, Tina, 31; their sons; Jared, 10, and Joshua, 8; and daughters Emily, 7, and Hannah, 5.
