9:45 a.m. 49S02-1305-CR-328. The Marion Superior Court found Coats incompetent to stand trial, and given his progressive dementia, determined that he would not “return to competency.” The trial court denied the State’s request that Coats be committed to the Indiana Division of Mental Health and Addiction pursuant to Indiana Code Section 35-36-3-1. A divided Court of Appeals panel affirmed in an interlocutory appeal. State v. Coats, 981 N.E.2d 1273 (Ind. Ct. App. 2013), vacated. The Supreme Court has granted a petition to transfer the case and has assumed jurisdiction over the appeal.
