A judge ruled Wednesday, Oct. 25, 2017 that Oberhansley, 36, isn’t mentally competent to stand trial on charges that he killed his ex-girlfriend, 46-year-old Tammy Jo Blanton, in September 2014 and ate parts of her body. The southern Indiana judge’s ruling came after she heard testimony from three doctors who evaluated him. (Tyler Stewart/News and Tribune via AP)
