Man accused of supporting IS group ruled incompetent

BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (AP) - A Connecticut man accused of pledging allegiance to the Islamic State group and wanting to fight for it in Syria has been ruled incompetent to stand trial. Federal Judge Kari Dooley cited a doctor's analysis in determining Wednesday that Kevin Iman McCormick, of Hamden, cannot understand the court proceedings because of a mental disease or defect. Hearst Connecticut Media reports McCormick was returned to federal custody to receive treatment with the goal of restoring his competence. He was arrested at a private Connecticut airport last year trying to get on a flight out of the country.
