VERONA, KY (FOX19) - Jeffrey Allen, a suspect in the January gruesome murder of a 19-year-old, will be in court Thursday for a competency hearing.

Allen was arrested in January for the murder of Daniel Delfin.

Investigators believe that Allen, along with Stephen Harkness and Anthony Baumgartner, murdered Delfin in an attempt to "target evil."

The men gruesomely dismembered the body and discarded it in various locations throughout Northern Kentucky.

The three men are charged with murder, kidnapping and abuse of a corpse in Delphin's death.
