MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - A judge has ordered a mental competency exam for a homeless man accused of beating another homeless man to death in Madison.

31-year-old Justin Brooks appeared in Dane County Circuit Court Monday, after he skipped out on a court appearance scheduled last Friday.

Brooks is charged with first-degree intentional homicide, after he allegedly beat 61-year-old Robert Kuntz to death with a table leg last Tuesday on Madison’s Capitol Square. Kuntz died the day after the attack.

A public defender asked for the competency exam to make sure Brooks can help with his defense. He’s in jail under a $105,000 bond.
