Man accused of stabbing RPD officer deemed competent to stand trial


ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WROC) — Keith Williams, the man accused of stabbing Rochester police officer Denny Wright in early October, was deemed competent to stand trial.

The 28-year-old Rochester man accused of stabbing a Rochester Police officer appeared in court Wednesday.

Williams is accusing of stabbing Officer Denny Wright in the head and face on Peck Street in October.

Last month, Williams pleaded not guilty to attempted aggravated murder and aggravated assault. Williams is currently being held without bail.

This is not his first run in with law enforcement as Williams has been in and out of court rooms many times this year.

Williams is scheduled to return to court on January 15, and his trial is scheduled to begin on April 6.
