In May, Bush was ruled incompetent to stand trial, but a doctor who evaluated Bush said he would likely gain competency in the future.

During the May hearing, Jefferson Circuit Judge Annie O'Connell ordered Bush be sent to the Kentucky Correctional Psychiatric Center to undergo the forced 60-day medication treatment.

In July, prosecutors said during a court hearing that a KCPC report found Bush was competent, but O'Connell had the ultimate authority to accept the report's findings.

On Thursday, both the prosecution and defense told O'Connell that a new evaluation and more treatment for Bush is needed. O'Connell agreed.

Bush has been held in Louisville Metro Corrections but will return to the state correctional psychiatric center in La Grange to undergo more treatment until further notice from the court.

Bush, who is white, has also pleaded not guilty to three federal hate crime charges and three federal gun charges in connection with the deaths.

The suspect, say authorities, fled the scene. Happened near Ross street inside a home. Area residents urged to keep doors locked and report anything unusual.

Both Stallard and Jones were black, and a bystander in the Kroger parking lot said Bush told him, "Whites don’t shoot whites."

Minutes before the Kroger shooting, police said Bush also attempted to enter the predominantly black First Baptist Church of Jeffersontown.

If convicted on the federal charges, Bush could face the death penalty or life in prison.

Bush is due back in U.S. District Court on Feb. 20 for the federal case.

Federal prosecutors have been waiting on the competency ruling to make a determination on seeking the death penalty.

The families of Jones and Stallard filed wrongful death suits against Bush and Kroger in August, and a customer who was inside the store during the shooting filed a class action lawsuit earlier in October.
