    The amended plea was added Monday by Michael Hand's lawyer after Hand pleaded not guilty to second degree-murder. Hand remains held in jail under a $500,000 bond.

    Judge Craig Pfeifle found Hand to be competent based on prior mental health evaluations.

    If convicted of second degree murder, Hand will face a mandatory life sentence and a possible $50,000 fine...

    Hand is scheduled to stand trial the week of August 17th.

    October 2015:

    Hand has pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity to second-degree murder. His attorney earlier asked Judge Craig Pfeifle to suppress statements Hand gave police. A psychologist testified Hand is intellectually disabled and would have some difficulty understanding his rights.

    Police testified Hand was read his rights before he was interviewed, agreed to speak with police and waived his right to an attorney.

    Pfeifle denied the defense motion on Thursday.
