Shawn Eric Ford Jr. listens during his first Common Pleas Court pretrial in the courtroom of Judge Tom Parker in the Summit County Courthouse. Fords attorneys told the judge they plan to meet with medical experts before deciding whether a competency evaluation is needed for the 18-year-old indicted on capital murder charges in the April 2 slayings of a prominent New Franklin couple.
