An El Paso County man accused of killing two people, including his wife, last November in Black Forest was found competent to stand trial by a judge Thursday.

Kenneth Lankford, 46, remained in custody without bond at the El Paso County jail on suspicion of two counts of first-degree murder, one count of attempted second-degree murder and one count of first-degree assault, records show.

Lankford is accused of fatally shooting Carol Fowler, 51, and wounding her husband Thomas, 52, at their home at 11725 Timberlane Ct., and then killing his wife, Terry, 51, at a home at 6685 Burrows Rd. on November 9.

Lankford will appear at the El Paso County courthouse May 12 for a preliminary hearing, according to court records.
