GARDENDALE, AL (WBRC) -

More information has been released about a Gardendale pastor charged with murder.

Police say Terry Greer shot and killed his wife and wounded his daughter inside the family's home in January.

His attorney has filed several motions in the past several days, including one that says Greer is incompetent to stand trial.

Greer's attorney is asking for his client to be moved from the Jefferson County Jail to Spain Rehabilitation Center, citing Greer's history of medical and mental issues.

In a motion, Greer's attorney asked for a psychiatric examination for his client, saying Greer's mental issues are so bad he may not be able to help prepare for his own defense.

At this point, Greer has pleaded not guilty to the crimes.
