OSHKOSH (AP) -

A Neenah man has been declared incompetent to stand trial in a Christmas Eve shooting that wounded his brother-in-law.

As a result, criminal proceedings against Christopher Andreas have been put on hold.

Andreas was charged with attempted first-degree intentional homicide for injuries suffered by his brother-in-law, Christopher Garland

Garland was watching football with his son in the Town of Clayton when he was shot and critically wounded.

Andreas' father says his son suffers from schizophrenia.

WLUK-TV reports while the case is on hold, Andreas will be committed to state care for custody and treatment.

The case will be reviewed in the future.
