An Eau Claire man charged with setting a fire in his apartment, then sexually assaulting a woman who came to help has been ruled incompetent.
Wesley Halliday was accused of starting a fire in November at his residence in Park Towers Apartments on Farwell Street. He said he was burning papers on his stove to warm up. A woman who came to help said Halliday pinned her against a wall and sexually assaulted her.
In a recent court appearance, prosecutors dismissed the arson charge. The other charges are suspended until Halliday regains competency.
