Burroughs not competent to stand trial in murder case

Posted:

Prairie Du Chien, Wisconsin (KWWL)--  A man charged with murdering a 23-year-old woman in 2006 was found not competent to stand trial at a hearing Wednesday.

During the hearing, officials with the Crawford County Circuit Court said Michael Burroughs was committed to the State Department of Health Services.

In October, Burroughs went to the Crawford County Jail and admitted to killing Shannon Fischer of Prairie Du Chien. She disappeared in 2006.

He will be re-examined every three months to see if he can stand trial. He has pleaded not guilty to first-degree reckless homicide and hiding a corpse.
