A judge has found a man, accused of beating his grandmother to death, incompetent to stand trial. 

Dontae Brown was indicted back in September for malicious wounding and aggravated malicious wounding after 64-year-old Charlotte Brewster was found badly beaten in her apartment. 

Brewster later died as a result of her injuries. 

According to Roanoke City Circuit Court, Brown will be transported to an in-patient facility for treatment before returning to court in June.
