According to online court records,an evaluation of Potter's mental condition was filed by the Fulton State Hospital on Aug. 12 and a hearing was held Tuesday to discuss the results.

Potter is accused of murdering his neighbor, Willis Edward Meredith, on Jan. 6.

Potter also reportedly dismembered Meredith’s body and threw the victim’s arms at witnesses.

Potter is facing a class A felony of first-degree murder, a class C felony of first-degree tampering with a motor vehicle, a class C felony of second-degree arson, felony armed criminal action and a class B felony of burglary in the first degree.

He entered a not guilty plea in April, at which time Locke told the court the defense would file a motion to have Potter committed to the Missouri Department of Mental Health.

Meredith also went by the alias “Jake Steadman” and lived in the Novinger area for about 30 years.
