New Caney man indicted despite incompetent finding
A New Caney man with an extensive criminal history is facing new charges following a felony indictment Tuesday, although he previously was found incompetent to stand trial.
Kyle Williams, 27, is facing one third-degree felony charge of assault causing bodily injury, although it is family enhanced.
A family assault charge means a victim is a member of the defendant’s family or the two are in, or were in, a dating relationship.
Detectives believe Williams hit a woman with a pipe. If convicted, Williams could be in prison for up to 10 years and face a fine up to $10,000.
Williams was found incompetent to stand trial in December 2016 and was ordered to a mental hospital for competency restoration. If restored to competency, prosecutors could move forward on the charges.
Williams has other felony convictions under his belt. In April 2007, Williams was arrested for possessing a controlled substance. He pleaded guilty to that charge in August 2007 in exchange for six months in jail.
Then in October 2009, he was arrested again for possessing a controlled substance. He pleaded guilty to that charge in August 2011 in exchange for one year in jail.
Most recently, Williams spent two years in prison for illegally possessing a firearm in February 2014.
Williams will be back in Judge Phil Grant’s 9th state District Court Feb. 3 for a status hearing.
