ROCHESTER, Minn. – A mental evaluation has been ordered for a man charged with a double homicide.

Glenn Roger Johnson, 53 of Rochester, is accused of two counts of 1st degree murder for the March 17 killings of Phillip William Hicks and Eric Alan Flemming. Rochester police say the victims were found at Castleview Apartments, where all three men were living.

Hicks and Flemming were found stabbed and then taken to St. Mary’s Hospital, where they were pronounced dead.

On Wednesday, the judge ordered examinations to determine if Johnson is mentally ill or if he is competent to stand trial.

Johnson remains in the Olmsted County Adult Detention Center on $3,000,000 bond.
