TYLER (TYLER MORNING TELEGRAPH) - Byron Truvia, accused of brutally stabbing a John Tyler High School teacher to death in 2009, was recommitted to a state hospital today following a hearing in a Smith County court.

Truvia is accused of killing John Tyler High School teacher Todd Henry in 2009, when Truvia attended the school as a juvenile.

After Truvia was certified as an adult in the legal system, Smith County Judge Christi Kennedy found him incompetent to stand trial in February 2012 after a court hearing.

She ordered that Truvia remain committed at Vernon State Hospital in northern Texas.
