Man who barricades himself in shed with gun incompetent to stand trial

ELYRIA – A Grafton man who allegedly holed up in a shed behind his father’s Carlisle Township home in August has been found incompetent to stand trial.

Elyria Municipal Court Judge Lisa Locke Graves made the finding during a hearing Tuesday and ordered 42-year-old Kelly Boros sent to a mental health facility for treatment, according to defense attorney Doug Merrill.

He said Boros suffers from “mental health issues coupled with drug use.” Boros’ mental status will be reviewed again in 60 days, Merrill said, and the state has a year to restore him to competency if they want to try him.

Boros barricaded himself inside the shed with a shotgun when Lorain County Sheriff’s deputies went to serve him with arrest warrants for drug possession, domestic violence and identity theft on Aug. 12.
