The man accused of shooting and killing a Rusk County Sheriff's Deputy last fall, has been found competent to stand trial in the case. 

44-year old Doug Nitek faces one count of first-degree intentional homicide and more than two-dozen other counts in the October 2016 shooting death of 33-year old Rusk County Deputy Dan Glaze. 

At a court hearing yesterday in Ladysmith, defense attorney, Charles Glynn, confirmed Nitek was found competent to stand trial, and according to prosecutor, Richard Dufour, the state has not requested any additional hearings as it relates to Nitek's competency. 

A date has not yet been set for Nitek's next court appearance.
