MARATHON COUNTY (WAOW) -- A Marathon County judge says the man responsible for a five hour standoff in Rothschild is not competent to stand trial.

Donald Welch appeared in front of judge Greg Grau for a competency hearing.

Welch is charged with three misdemeanors including pointing a gun at a person, obstructing an officer and disorderly conduct.

Grau committed Welch to mental health treatment. He'll be re-evaluated over the next year.
