COLUMBIA, Ky. (AP) -- A southern Kentucky man has been freed on bond after a judge determined he was incompetent to stand trial on a murder charge stemming from shooting seven years ago.
 
   Wellie Paul Grant stands charged with shooting and killing 46-year-old Rex Coffey at Beech Grove Separate Baptist Church in Adair County during a dispute in June 2006.
 
   On Friday, a judge cited Grant's declining physical health and dementia in releasing him on bond and concluding he was unable to stand trial. Grant's bond includes provisions that he can't operate a motor vehicle, or possess a firearm, and he's not allowed to leave his home without the company of an adult family member.
 
   Coffey's sister, Pam Cundiff, told WBKO-TV in Bowling Green (http://bit.ly/UYHncy ) her family doesn't feel safe with Grant being released.
