Norfolk, Va. - The man accused of killing his ex-girlfriend and his neighbor heads to court on Wednesday.

Police say Jamiel Graves murdered his next door neighbor, Phylicia Robinson, in Norfolk, and his ex-girlfriend, Mandi Myers, in Virginia Beach, last year in November.

Officials say Graves's mother found Robinson's body in his closet weeks after she disappeared.

Myers's body was also found in a closet, by her sister.

A court ordered mental evaluation said Graves suffers from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, depression, and drug addiction.

But, a judge ruled earlier this year, Graves is competent to stand trial.
