A trial for a man accused of fatally stabbing a 57-year-old Bountiful woman six years ago has been delayed after he was once again deemed incompetent to stand trial.
Phillip Joseph Simmons, 41, is charged with first-degree felony murder for allegedly stabbing Susanne Fry more than 20 times at her home on Jan. 19, 2008.
Since the charges were filed, Simmons had twice been found incompetent to stand trial, and has been receiving treatment at the Utah State Hospital. However, last January, he was found competent to proceed with trial, and a December trial was set.
That trial was cancelled, and last week, Simmons was found incompetent for trial once more. A judge ordered him back to the state hospital to receive further treatment.
