    NORTH HAVERHILL, N.H. - A psychologist has declared a Vermont man charged with fatally stabbing a private school trustee in a New Hampshire hotel lobby "not competent, but restorable."

    Rodney Hill of West Danville, Vt., said he was going through a divorce and was angry over an email from his boss when he stabbed White Mountain School trustee Catherine Houghton on Jan. 28 at the Hampton Inn in Littleton. They were strangers.

    The Caledonian Record reports (http://bit.ly/149TjAR) Dennis Becotte, a clinical psychologist with the state Office of the Forensic Medical Examiner, diagnosed Hill in February. A second psychologist was scheduled to examine Hill on July 11.

    A judge granted a motion to seal Hill's competency evaluation and related documents on July 22.

    Trial for the 37-year-old Hill has tentatively been scheduled for March 2014.
