The two remaining defendants in the 2014 murder of James Croft will undergo competency evaluations.

Those were the rulings Friday in McPherson County District Court, as both Kamra Farrell, 28, and Samuel Darrah, 45, both will be evaluated to determine their ability to stand trial for the the Nov. 15, 2014 murder of James Croft in rural McPherson County.

Both Darrah and Farrell will be evaluated at Prairie View Mental Health Center in McPherson, with the results to be discussed during hearings on Dec. 11. Darrah's hearing is slated for 10 am, while Farrell's is at 11 am. Farrell's attorney, Kevin Loeffler, filed both motions.

Clinton Bascue, 32, has already been sentenced to life in prison for his role in Croft's death, which allegedly was centered on a laptop computer and $3,200 in cash that Bascue, Darrah and Farrell believed Croft to have taken from them.

Bascue will be eligible for parole in 25 years.
