THIBODAUX- A Lafourche Parish judge is reviewing testimony and evidence about the sanity of a man accused of beheading his disabled son in 2011.

Judge John LeBlanc says he will rule Thursday on whether Jeremiah Wright is competent to stand trial in the case.

Wright is accused of killing 7-year-old Jori Lirette and leaving his head in the yard of the house where Wright lived with the boy's mother.
