(JEFFERSONVILLE) - A southern Indiana prosecutor says he expects to soon see mental competency evaluations of a man accused of killing his former girlfriend and eating parts of her body.

Clark County Prosecutor Jeremy Mull told the News and Tribune ( ) Wednesday he expects the evaluations of Joseph Oberhansley of Jeffersonville to be filed and submitted to his office any day now.

Oberhansley currently faces a June 12 trial date on charges of murder, rape and abuse of a corpse in the September 2014 slaying of 46-year-old Tammy Jo Blanton of Jeffersonville. However, Clark Circuit Judge Vicki Carmichael on March 28 granted defense attorneys' request for a competency evaluation to be conducted by three psychologists or psychiatrists.

Once the evaluations are completed, Carmichael will likely schedule a competency hearing.
