UPDATE: Benzie County Man Charged for Killing Wife Is Competent to Stand Trial

Posted: Updated:

A Benzie County man charged for killing his wife back 6 months ago is competent to stand trial.

Deputies arrested DeShawn Stanton back in May for shooting and killing his wife, Stephanie Stanton, in a home on Cinder Road in Homestead Township.

An autopsy shows she died from a single gunshot wound to the neck.

Several people were in the home when the shooting happened.

Investigators recovered the gun at the scene.

Court records show Stanton has been in jail for previous assaults against his wife.

Stanton will be in court again, next week.
