— A Kansas man suspected of trying to kill his three children has a hearing scheduled May 5 in Seward County District Court.

The case against Irineo Garcia of Liberal stalled in December when he was ordered to undergo an evaluation at Larned State Hospital.

Garcia is charged with three counts of attempted first-degree murder after his children, ages 5, 6 and 7, were injured at their home last October. They have recovered from their wounds. Garcia also allegedly tried to kill himself.

The Hutchinson News reports Tuesday that the evaluation's results were reported to the court in early April, but the results were not available. The evaluation will determine if Garcia is competent to stand trial.

Garcia is being held on the Seward County Jail on $1 million bond.
