After months of treatment at a state hospital, a man facing an attempted murder charge has returned to the Leavenworth County Jail.

After months of treatment at a state hospital, a man facing an attempted murder charge has returned to the Leavenworth County Jail.

But a decision regarding whether Andrew G. Foderaro is now competent to stand trial has been delayed at the request of his attorney.

Foderaro, 20, is charged in Leavenworth County District Court with with attempted first-degree murder, possession of cocaine, a misdemeanor count of possession of stolen property and a misdemeanor count of possession of marijuana.

The charges stem from an Oct. 27, 2017, incident that occurred on 227th Street.

A criminal complaint alleges that Foderaro discharged a firearm multiple times with the intent to kill another man.

The victim was taken to the hospital following the incident, according to Leavenworth County Undersheriff Jim Sherley.

Sherley has said authorities believe the shooting resulted from a drug deal that had gone bad.

In February, a judge ruled that Fodarero was not competent to stand trial. The defendant was remanded to the Larned State Security Hospital.

“Now he’s back,” District Judge Michael Gibbens said Friday.

Foderaro appeared before Gibbens Friday with his attorney Carl Cornwell.

Cornwell said he had not seen a report regarding his client’s condition.

Gibbens said he had received a copy of the report. The judge provided the report to Cornwell during the hearing.

After reviewing the document, Cornwell acknowledged the report suggested Foderaro is competent. But Cornwell wanted to review diagnoses in the report to determine if he wants to present evidence regarding his client’s condition.

“I don’t know that I will, but I would like the opportunity,” Cornwell said.

The case was continued until Oct. 5.

Foderaro remains in custody at the Leavenworth County Jail.
