A competency hearing has been set in Carter County District Court for a Sulphur man accused in a March 5 shooting in Ardmore that claimed the life of one victim and severely injured a second victim.
Court documents show the hearing to determine if Joshua Scott is competent to stand trial is set for 2:30 p.m. Sept. 15.  
The 26-year-old is charged with first-degree murder in the death of Erik Tucker, 35, Ardmore, and shooting with intent to kill in the wounding of Jennifer Alexander, 34, Choctaw. The double-shooting occurred in a residence located in the 700 block of C Street NW. He also faces a third charge of felonious possession of the gun he used to shoot Tucker and Alexander. Tucker died at the scene. Alexander was airlifted to a Plano, Texas, hospital were she underwent surgery for her wounds. Both victims suffered multiple gunshot wounds, including facial wounds.
In addition to the three charges, District Attorney Craig Ladd has filed a “Page II’ in the case. The document provides evidence of the 26-year-old’s prior felony convictions. (Scott was released from a state prison about a year ago after serving sentences for burglary and larceny.) If convicted of any of the current charges the document seeks penalty enhancements.
Scott was arrested in Sulphur by Ardmore police just a day after the shooting. He had been detained without bond at the Carter County Detention Center until late May when his court appointed attorney, James Gilmartin, told Special District Judge Carson Brooks during a scheduled conference he was concerned about his client’s ability to assist in his own defense. At the time Brooks ordered Scott to undergo competency evaluation. Information obtained during the subsequent evaluation will be presented at the upcoming hearing and the determination of whether the defendant is competent.
The charges in Carter County District Court aren’t the only current felonies Scott faces. Court records also show an outstanding conjoint robbery case in Pontotoc County District Court.
