ODESSA, TX (KWES) - Defense attorneys for an Odessa teen charged with killing his parents said he's incompetent to stand trial.

The preliminary results of Gabe McDonald's, 17, mental health evaluation were made available moments ago.

The decision means the defense team doctors have determined he is likely not competent to stand trial meaning he cannot be found guilty of any crime right now.

We've been following up with McDonald's family and his legal team ever since he was charged with shooting and killing his parents two months ago.
