The Goshen County Attorney’s office says a scheduled Monday court appearance for first degree murder suspect Jamie Snyder has been suspended after a defense order for a competency evaluation.
The 29 year old Ft. Laramie man had been scheduled for his first opportunity to have a preliminary hearing in the case at 9:30 a.m. Monday morning.
Snyder is accused in the death of 32 year old Wade Erschabek of Guernsey. Court documents say the fatal stabbing took place at a Ft. Laramie residence after Snyder thought the victim was the person responsible for breaking into his home and stealing a title for his older model pickup. Snyder claims he stabbed Erschabek in self defense.
Snyder is being held without bond.
