Man charged in officer’s slaying to remain behind bars

November 23, 2019

DETROIT (AP) — A man accused of killing a university police officer in Detroit was ordered to remain behind bars during his latest competency hearing.

Raymond Durham has been found not competent to stand trial multiple times and on Friday a judge rejected his petition for release, ordering Durham to remain incarcerated.

The 63-year-old is charged with first-degree murder in the November 2016 shooting death of 29-year-old Collin Rose, who was a sergeant with the Wayne State University police department.

The officer’s father, Randy Rose, attended Friday’s hearing, saying he needed to be there to make sure Durham wouldn’t be released.

WDIV-TV reports that Dr. Ravi Singh Kirbat, a psychiatrist at the Center for Forensic Psychiatry, told the court that Durham has been diagnosed with schizophrenia and continues to exhibit “active psychotic symptoms.”
