A 28-year-old Detroit man who is accused of killing two of his family members and critically wounding his own 7-year-old daughter has been ordered to undergo a competency hearing to determine whether he is mentally fit to stand trial. The hearing is scheduled for May 2.
Ferdarius Shine is charged with two counts of first-degree murder, three counts of assault with intent to murder and one count of felony firearm.
His mother told police Shine was "possessed." Sources say he left the house screaming, "The Devil made me do it."
Shine's aunt, Santangela Williams, and his grandmother, Geraldine Bates, were killed.
His young daughter suffered a non-life-threatening gunshot wound.
Shine turned himself in at an area hospital the next morning.
