NEW ORLEANS-The suspect in the 2015 death of a New Orleans police officer has returned to the courtroom where he abruptly ended his trial last month by smearing excrement on his head.

Travis Boys was ruled incompetent for trial after the October incident. The judge in the case ordered him evaluated and treated. The issue in Thursday's hearing is whether he is now competent to stand trial on a first-degree murder charge in the death of Officer Daryle Holloway.

Boys has pleaded not guilty and not guilty by reason of insanity. He was seated at the defense table Thursday, shackled and surrounded by three guards as court began.

The hearing started with the judge warning Boys that he could be removed from court for disruptive behavior.
