The appellant was convicted of alleged murder and sentenced to life in prison. The factual-sufficiency standard of review explained in Meraz governs review of the jury's competency determination. Given a doctor's testimony, the jury's refusal to find that appellant was incompetent was not so against the great weight and preponderance of the evidence as to be manifestly unjust. The trial court's judgment is affirmed. Dallas Court of Appeals, No. 05-11-00300-CR, 10-30-2012.
