Thibodaux - The Thibodaux man accused of beheading his 7-year-old son in August 2011 has been found competent to stand trial.

Lafourche Parish Judge John LeBlanc ruled Friday that Jeremiah Lee Wright is now fit for trial, following his former decision in February that Wright was incompetent to stand trial. This makes the third competency hearing for Wright.

Wright has spent time in both a state mental hospital and in prison after the severed head of his son, Jori Lirette, was found in the yard at their home.
