URBANA -- A Champaign County judge says a man accused of murder isn't fit to stand trial. Investigators say 31-year old Terry Brownlee stabbed his mother to death and set her body on fire in April.

He was charged with murder, arson and concealing a homicide. Court documents say he has a history of mental illness. Brownlee has been transferred to a mental health facility.
