A third mental exam has been ordered for an Elkhart man accused of killing his uncle.

Charles Bussard, 30, is charged with murder in the 2015 disappearance and presumed killing of 45-year-old Byron Bussard, according to 95.3 MNC’s reporting partners at The Elkhart Truth.

The Bristol man’s family reported him missing in February 2015, but no information on his fate was ever known until his nephew allegedly admitted to fatally shooting Byron shooting him and disposing of his body in a way that made it “unrecoverable”.

The Elkhart Truth reports Bussard’s lawyer requested that he be given mental evaluations to determine whether he’s competent to stand trial.
