Anderson County Man Accused of Shooting His Neighbor in Court

The man accused of murdering his neighbor appears in court.

An Anderson County judge ruled yesterday (Tuesday) that George Patterson must undergo a psychiatric evaluation to see if he can stand trial on a first-degree murder charge stemming from the Nov. 23 shooting of Dave Roach Jr.

His fiance says Roach was killed by their next-door neighbor who had repeatedly feuded with and threatened them.
