Joseph Ray Daniels, the Dickson County father charged with killing his 5-year-old son Joe Clyde, has been found competent for trial after weeks of evaluation, The Tennessean reports. Daniels had been in the Middle Tennessee Mental Health Institute in Nashville for evaluation until last week, when he was returned to jail. He has entered a not guilty plea, although investigators say he confessed to beating Joe Clyde to death in April.
