Wichita A federal judge has found a Kansas man competent to stand trial on charges of threatening the president of the United States.
U.S. District Judge J. Thomas Marten made the ruling following a competency hearing Thursday for Michael Scott Ramsey.
Ramsey is charged in a two-count indictment with making threats in 2009 and 2011 against Barack Obama.
The hearing comes after Ramsey underwent a psychological examination and evaluation at a federal medical center. Officials determined he had the ability to understand the proceedings against him and assist in his own defense.
