Default Man accused of killing grandparents competent for trial

MASON CITY — A man accused of stabbing to death his grandparents in the Mason City home they shared has been ruled competent for trial.

A judge said in a Cerro Gordo County District Court filing Tuesday that 25-year-old Codie Matz will be able to understand the proceedings and assist in his defense. In December his attorneys filed court documents saying it “appears the defendant is suffering from a mental disorder.” Matz’s trial is scheduled to begin March 27.
