    BURLINGTON ó Authorities say a man considered a person of interest in a suspicious death has been found competent following a psychiatric evaluation.

    Court papers said 52-year-old Mark Delude told others he acted in self-defense when he killed Forrest Bryant in May at a Burlington homeless encampment. He was charged with obstruction of justice.

    Delude has been jailed for lack of $10,000 bail at the Northwest State Correctional Facility in St. Albans.

    Lawyers told Judge Samuel Hoar at a hearing Monday the state was waiting for a medical examinerís report before deciding whether to bring homicide charges against Delude.
