WAUKESHA, Wis. - A competency examination was ordered Monday, June 20 for a man accused of making terrorist threats against Carroll University.
Prosecutors charged Timothy Hoeller, 61, in February for statements he made about "shooting up" the school.
In 2018, Carroll University hired Hoeller to teach a physics course, then fired him mid-semester. Since then, the university officials said he's sent hundreds of communications, some of them hinting at homicide or suicide.
In May, a Waukesha County judge granted the university a 10-year restraining order.

On Monday, a different judge delayed a preliminary hearing after Hoeller's own lawyer requested a competency evaluation.
