A Lucas County Common Pleas judge reset the competency hearing for a man charged in the 1967 slaying of a Sylvania Township girl.
Robert Bowman, 74, is charged with first-degree murder in the slaying of Eileen Adams, 14. He is accused of kidnapping, raping, and killing the teen who last seen Dec. 18, 1967, as she was getting off a bus in West Toledo.
Monday, Judge Gene Zmuda set a March 4 date to hear testimony on whether Bowman is competent to stand trial. He was evaluated twice, which resulted in one opinion that he was competent and a second that was inconclusive.
Bowman was arrested Oct. 2, 2008, in Cathedral City, Calif., and extradited to Ohio. A warrant was issued for his arrest in November, 2007, after a reverse paternity test was used to match Bowman's DNA to that found on the victim's body.
