A Kansas judge ruled a homeless man is not competent to stand trial for dismembering his wife's body and sleeping with her remains.

Justin Rey is accused of dismembering his wife in a Missouri hotel room. Rey told investigators he slept in a Kansas storage unit with her remains. Investigators say Rey took photographs of himself with his wife's body before dismembering her. He also told police she died during childbirth and that she killed herself.

The couple has two children together. They were taken to a mental hospital for treatment.

Rey is charged with child endangerment and abandonment of a corpse and was ordered to receive treatment.

 He's also charged in the death of a California man whose body hasn't been found.
