Duane Rolfe has been charged with two counts of second-degree murder in connection with the death of 66-year-old Judith Rolfe. She died of multiple blunt trauma to the head.
Police said they were called to the siblings’ Nashua home Jan. 19 and arrested the 65-year-old Rolfe.
The Telegraph reported the evaluation was ordered Tuesday by District Court Judge Michael Ryan at the request of Rolfe’s attorney, Jacki Smith.
If Rolfe is found incompetent to stand trial, prosecutors could request a follow-up examination.
The siblings ran the McDonald’s kitchenware store, which has been in the Rolfe family since the 1930s.
