A man who is accused of killing four of his family members because they were keeping him from his former Disney actress love interest is not mentally competent to stand trial, a judge ruled Thursday.
Daniel Livingston Green, 40, will be sent to the Oklahoma Forensic Center in Vinita to be treated so that he may regain competency to face trial on four first-degree murder charges, Oklahoma County District Judge Glenn Jones ruled.
Green is accused of shooting and killing his mother, Sallie Green, 57, his sister, Rebecca Cizek, 34, and her children, 16-year-old Katherine Cizek and Amario Dominguez III, who was 6 months old.
Their bodies were found inside the family’s home, 4601 SE 79, on Aug. 14. 2013. Police found a .380-caliber handgun in the vehicle Daniel Green was driving when he was arrested, according to a probable cause affidavit.
On Daniel Green’s Facebook page, numerous posts were dedicated to former Disney star Selena Gomez, with personal and often sexually explicit messages.
Green told police he had to get away from his family members because they were stopping him from being with his one true love, the affidavit states.
Raymond Green, Daniel Green’s father, was in court Thursday and did not object to the report, which stated that his son was not able to rationally assist his attorneys in his defense.
The report, written by a forensic psychologist, also stated that Green could presently be dangerous if he were released.
The report will be retained by the court and not made public record until after Green’s trial, Jones said.
A report on his condition is required to be presented to the court every 120 days.
Green has remained without bail in the Oklahoma County jail since his arrest.
