    Competency tests bring inconclusive results, doctors say of man accused of murdering 10-year-old Kotzebue girl

    Posted: Fri 7:45 AM, Jan 24, 2020 |
    Updated: Fri 6:26 PM, Jan 24, 202
    ANCHORAGE (KTUU) -- Experts testified Friday that the man accused of killing 10-year old Ashley Johnson-Barr in Kotzebue had poor results on his competency tests, but that the results of those tests are inconclusive when it comes to determining if he's competent to stand trial.
    [.....]

    On Friday, Judge Nelson Traverso heard witnesses brought forth by the State of Alaska by Jenna Gruenstein from the Office of Special Prosecutions and Wilson’s defense attorney Ariel Toft during a competency hearing to determine if Wilson is capable of standing trial.
    [.....]
    [Dr. Cynthia] Low testified that she found Wilson was a ‘poor historian,’ showing signs of having a bad memory. Part of her work also included looking at his school records, which showed he didn't receive special education until later in high school.

    She also said that Wilson reported seeing hallucinations and hearing voices, mostly related to an uncle who had molested him as a child. However, while he was at the Seattle facility where the tests were conducted, he didn't show severe signs of those symptoms.
    [.....]
    Toft, Wilson's defense attorney, called a second doctor, Dr. Kaichen McRae, who reviewed the same information and the reports from Dr. Low. McRae testified that she only redid the memory test on Wilson, and found very similar results.

    Both doctors said in court that it appeared as though Wilson was either not trying on the tests, or trying to perform badly on them.

    “I was not able to reach a final conclusion on Mr. Wilson’s competency,” McRae said, “I got the impression that Mr. Wilson was not entirely forthright and effortful after the course of my evaluation of his competency. Because of that, all of the information I have related to the competency that’s available becomes questionable.”
    [.....]
    Judge Traverso asked McRae if Wilson understood how serious his crimes were, and judicial process questions like who the judge, defense, and prosecution are. She said she believed Wilson understood all of those things to some capacity.

    Two more witnesses testified Friday: Andrew Carter, who was in the same unit as Wilson in the Kotzebue jail; and Kotzebue Police Chief Thomas Milliette.
    [.....]
    Friday's hearing did not bring a ruling on whether Wilson is competent to stand trial. Judge Traverso scheduled a status hearing for Feb. 5, when they are going to hear from at least one more witness.
