A Connecticut man charged with attempting to provide material support for ISIS and al-Sham was found mentally incapable of standing trial, the New Haven Register reported Wednesday.
Kevin Iman McCormick, 27, was initially charged by the U.S. Attorney’s Office for Connecticut in October 2019, the New Haven Register reported, but was “presently suffering from a mental disease or defect” and found incapable of participating in a trial, according to a medical report.
