Attorneys for man accused of killing Summerville resident request competency evaluation

CLARION – The attorneys representing Jeremy Dailey, the man accused of shooting and killing 74-year-old Thomas Kemmer of Summerville, have requested a competency evaluation for Dailey.

According to Clarion County Court records, Dailey has not yet entered a plea to the charge of first-degree criminal homicide and four other felonies.

A competency evaluation, if granted by the judge, would determine if Dailey is fit to stand trial.

Police say 46-year-old Dailey broke into Kemmer’s house on January 29th, physically assaulted Kemmer, and then shot him multiple times.

Dailey is being held in the Clarion County Jail with bail currently denied.
