Officers lead Vincent Seard into District Courtroom 1 at the Kerr County Courthouse Thursday, for a brief hearing. Seard is accused of murdering two Comfort residents in 2003.

A man accused of brutally killing two people near Comfort about 17 years ago in a random attack will once again be brought to Kerrville for trial.

Sheriff W.R. “Rusty” Hierholzer told county commissioners today that medical officials have declared capital murder defendant Vincent Seard to be mentally competent to stand trial. Seard, 56, has been incarcerated at various out-of-county state hospitals for years while being treated for mental illness. He’s now at an East Texas hospital in Rusk, Hierholzer said.
