OTTAWA — Based on expert testimony given during a full competency hearing Thursday morning, Putnam County Common Pleas Court Judge Randall Basinger found Travis Soto, 30, Napoleon, competent to stand trial on charges of aggravated murder, murder, kidnapping, felonious assault and tampering with evidence.

The charges stem from Soto's alleged involvement in the 2006 death of his two-year old son, Julio Soto-Baldazo.
