FARMINGTON -- A 31-year-old man who police say slashed the throat of another man this summer has been found competent to stand trial.
Two mental health reports, which were recently submitted to the court, concur that William Thomas Dominguez is competent, said Bill Albright, a public defender.
Dominguez appeared in 2nd District Court on Tuesday before Judge David Connors. He is being held in Davis County Jail in lieu of $100,000 bond.
Dominguez entered not guilty pleas to one count of attempted murder, first-degree murder; and to two misdemeanors, resisting an arresting officer and possession of a dangerous weapon.
Another hearing has been set for Oct. 29.
Clinton police said Dominguez showed up at his brother's house to talk to him early on the morning of June 10, but another man came out to talk to Dominguez instead. Dominguez grabbed the man and slashed the man's throat, cutting it left to right about 8 inches long and 1/8-inch deep, police said.
When police arrived they found Dominguez at the scene. The man whose throat was slashed refused treatment.
