A Calgary man, who is charged with killing his estranged girlfriend in October, has been fit to stand trial for her murder.

A judge found on Monday that 29-year-old Trey Guenther was mentally able to stand trial in the death of Lacey Jones-McKnight.

Jones-McKnight was found dead inside a car on Country Hills Blvd. on October 30.

He was found nearby trying to hang himself from a bridge.

He was hospitalized after the incident.

Guenther’s defence lawyer left it up to a psychiatrist to determine if Guenther would stand trial for the death.

He faces a charge of second degree murder and will remain in custody until a bail hearing is scheduled.
