WEST ALLIS — The 14-year-old boy accused of killing two West Allis brothers was found to be competent to stand trial. A preliminary hearing is set for March 30.

A court-ordered doctor’s report concluded that Spencer Lewis is competent to stand trial in the killings of Croshian "CJ" Edwards, 19, and Tarjan "Tra" Edwards, 17. Bail was set at $100,000, last week.

Lewis is charged as an adult with two counts for first-degree reckless homicide in the killings of the Edwards brothers during what police believe was a botched robbery at their West Allis home Feb. 12. A 13-year-old is charged in juvenile court with being an accomplice.

A judge ruled last week that Lewis can understand the charges against him and help in his defense.
