MANASSAS, Va. — A judge has ruled that an illegal immigrant charged in a triple murder last year is incompetent to stand trial.

Thirty-nine-year-old Jose Oswaldo Reyes Alfaro faces a possible death penalty for the slayings of his friend Julio Cesar Ulloa, his former girlfriend Brenda Ashcraft and her son William Ashcraft in Manassas in February 2011.

Reyes Alfaro is also accused of attacking 77-year-old woman with a machete. She survived.
