Moore is currently being treated at Northcoast Behavioral Healthcare for mental health treatment.

Moore will be evaluated again by the Cuyahoga County Court’s Psychiatric Clinic after he receives treatment for a year.

If ruled competent at that time, Moore will be transported back to the Cuyahoga County Jail and the case will proceed through its normal course.

If ruled incompetent at that time, he will be civilly committed to a mental health facility.

Police have not released a motive for the murder.
