Daniel K. Christesen, 49, has been charged with first-degree intentional homicide in the stabbing death of his girlfriend, Carol.
Proceedings were suspended in December 2009 after he was found incompetent to participate. He was committed for treatment and will be periodically re-evaluated.
Carol Fisher had reportedly told him that she was leaving the relationship. Police had responded to complaints at the home that were characterized as minor disputes at least fifteen times since January 2008.
