MARSHALL — A Lyon County District Court judge has ordered evaluations to determine if Paul Kenneth Laumann, 63, is competent to proceed with court proceedings following his arrest after a police standoff.

Laumann faces charges of first-degree attempted murder, first-degree assault, second-degree assault with a dangerous weapon, making terroristic threats, and reckless discharge of a firearm. He allegedly fired at officers during a standoff on April 17.

At Tuesday’s hearing, which was initially set to determine probable cause for the charges, defense attorney Cecil Naatz requested mental health evaluations to assess Laumann’s competency and potential mental illness defense. Lyon County Attorney Abby Wikelius agreed to the request. Judge Michelle Dietrich granted the request, pausing court proceedings until the evaluations are completed.

The competency evaluation is to be completed within 30 days, and the second evaluation within 60 days.
