FERNLEY, Nev. (AP) — A northern Nevada man accused of killing five people in Fernley and Mustang earlier this year has been found competent for court proceedings.
Officials announced Monday that District Judge Leon Aberasturi cleared the way for Jeremiah Diaz Bean's case to move forward.
The Lyon County District Attorney's Office called the decision a positive development in the case.
Bean is charged with killing two couples in two homes in the rural town of Fernley and a newspaper deliveryman off an Interstate 80 exit in Sparks during Mother's Day weekend.
He was convicted of burglary in 2011 in Lyon County and granted probation, which records show was revoked six months later. He was jailed for a year and released last September.
