ANOKA, Minn. (AP) — A man accused of killing a St. Paul woman and concealing her body inside a car has been ruled competent to stand trial.

Anoka County District Judge Daniel O'Fallon issued the ruling against Alberto Palmer at a hearing Friday.

The 24-year-old is charged with first-degree murder in the death of 18-year-old Brittany Clardy, who investigators say was working as a prostitute when she died.

Clardy's body was found Feb. 19 in a car at an impound lot. Authorities suspect Palmer of killing Clardy with a hammer in Brooklyn Park and hiding her body in a car that he allegedly abandoned outside a nearby apartment complex.

The St. Paul Pioneer Press reports (http://bit.ly/GQaU6k ) that Palmer has yet to enter a plea. His next hearing is scheduled for Nov. 13.
