In November 2012, Harris was deemed incompetent for trial and was sent to the Utah State Hospital for treatment. But in July, both defense attorneys and prosecutors agreed Harris was competent.
A preliminary hearing is set for Nov. 8 before Judge Robert Dale, who will hear evidence to determine if the case should be advanced to trial.
The shooting episodes were preceded by a call to police at about 9:40 p.m. on March 21, 2012, that a woman was screaming loudly in one of the residences at the Quail Ridge Mobile Home Park. As officers headed to the scene, police learned a car had sped away, it appeared the mobile home's door had been kicked in and the man appeared to be throwing things outside.
Officers set up a perimeter and learned the woman was at a hospital receiving treatment for a gunshot wound. They also learned that the couple's two children, then 1 and 3, were still inside the home with Harris.
The officers called Harris out from his home, and he exited carrying no weapons. But he then turned to re-enter the home, police said. One officer shot a Taser at Harris twice, but it didn't stop him. At that point, fearing for the safety of the children inside and wanting to prevent Harris from accessing a weapon, Layton Officer John Lynch fired several rounds from a handgun, police said.
In June of last year, the Davis County Attorney's Office announced it had determined the officer was justified in shooting Harris.
