ELLICOTT CITY, Md. — A judge in Howard County has ruled that a man accused of murdering three people is incompetent to stand trial.
Jeffrey Burnham, 47, was arrested in October after police say he shot and killed his brother and sister in-law at their home in Ellicott City.
Investigators believe Burnham murdered his brother, who was a pharmacist, because he administered COVID-19 vaccines and thought he was poisoning people.
Prior to that, Burnham allegedly killed an 83-year-old family friend at her home in Western Maryland — before stealing her car.
Two weeks ago, an Allegany County judge also ruled Burnham incompetent to stand trial.
Burnham is currently committed to the Maryland Department of Health.
