MILWAUKEE — The man who has been charged in connection with violent New Year’s Eve armed robberies will have a competency exam, according to court documents.

Two of the three suspects and a 2-year-old child died after their car went into the Kinnickinnic River. Andre M. Dyson, the only surviving suspect, was taken into custody and charged with armed robbery, attempted armed robbery and first-degree recklessly endangering safety, regarding his involvement in the offenses.

The court was advised Monday there is reason to believe Dyson could not be competent to proceed. Due to the court's findings, there will be a competency examination of the suspect. The doctor's return report of the suspect is scheduled for Feb. 11.
