A mental health evaluation has determined a man charged with killing a Rockwell City, Iowa police officer is competent to stand trial.

A sealed mental health evaluation indicates Corey Trott is able to stand trial. He's pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder in the shooting death of officer Jamie Buenting during an early morning standoff in September 2013.

The trial, which was moved to Wright County at the request of defense attorneys, was scheduled to begin Sept. 2.

Trott is being held in the Webster County Jail in Fort Dodge.
