A judge on Monday is expected to decide of a triple-homicide suspect in Madison County is competent to stand trial.

Rashad Riddick is accused in the 2011 deaths of James Jackson, his wife Karen and her daughter Chante Davis.

Last year, a judge ruled Riddick was incompetent to stand trial.

Doctors at a hospital told a judge this summer that after treatments, he's now mentally stable. They testified at a hearing in August.

The judge in the case deferred making a decision on Riddick's competency at the August hearing but is expected to make a final ruling on Monday.
