Michigan man charged in acid attack to undergo evaluation

A 53-year-old man accused of pouring acid on his girlfriend will undergo an evaluation to determine his competency to stand trial.

Gregory Alan Marsman was to have a preliminary examination on Wednesday but his attorney requested the evaluation.

He's been charged with torture, home invasion and domestic violence and earlier denied breaking into the home in Allegan County's Ganges Township. 

The Grand Rapids Press reports the victim, 54-year-old Sheryl Keech, remains in the hospital with serious burns after the March 16 attack.

WOOD-TV reports that investigators allege Marsman made statements about Keech's son being possessed, and "demonic" letters were found in Marsman's bedroom.

He remains jailed on a $100,000 bond.
