RACINE — One of the men accused of killing a Racine musician is claiming insanity.

21-year-old Kiori Billups was in court Wednesday morning, August 1st. A judge granted his request for a hearing to determine whether he is competent to stand trial.

Billups and 20-year-old Latriell Thurman are charged with killing 22-year-old Jeremiah Brook.

Prosecutors say they set up a drug deal with Brook with the intent of robbing him, and he was later found with a gunshot wound to his heart.

Thurman’s case has now been pushed back until next week.
