BOWLING GREEN, Ohio (AP) — A former truck driver who authorities say is linked by DNA to the slayings of four women at truck stops in Ohio and Illinois is not competent to stand trial in a 1996 killing. Wood County Common Pleas Judge Matthew Reger ruled Monday that Samuel Legg III is incapable of assisting in his own defense and will continue to be held in a psychiatric facility. Authorities have said that Legg has a history of mental illness. A county grand jury had indicted Legg in August 2020 on charges of aggravated murder, murder, rape, and kidnapping in the death of a Cleveland woman whose body was found behind a truck stop near Toledo.
