GREENVILLE — A former South Carolina church deacon accused of trying to rob a bank has been found competent to stand trial.
Court documents show U.S. Magistrate Bruce Howe Hendricks made the determination Wednesday during a hearing for 43-year-old Bruce Windsor.
Prosecutors say the father of four entered a Greenville bank in February with a gun and demanded two bank employees fill two boxes with money. After a 90-minute standoff, he gave up peacefully and released the two hostages uninjured.
Windsor's family has said he snapped because of financial problems.
He pleaded not guilty to federal charges Wednesday. Jury selection is to begin next month.
