From the Columbia County D.A.'s Office:
The former Hudson mayoral candidate, that was charged in June with making terroristic threats, was in Columbia County Court today. Judge Murphy from Saratoga County ruled that 42 year old Fred Starke was not competent to stand trial, after hearing testimony from three mental health professionals.
Both Columbia County judges had removed themselves from the case, due to some of the alleged threats in the case were against them.
Judge Murphy turned Mr. Starke over to the Commissioner of Mental Health for treatment.
