FERNDALE, Mich. (AP) — A Detroit rapper charged with first-degree murder in the death of the owner of a recording studio is competent to stand trial, a judge ruled Thursday.

Attorney Todd Fox had requested the competency hearing for 36-year-old Terrence Terrell Moore, who is charged in the January shooting of Amjed “AJ” Abdallah. A preliminary examination is scheduled for June 1 at 43rd District Court in Ferndale.

Police say Moore, who also is known by the nicknames “13,” “TT,” and “Mad Dog,” shot Abdallah and stole a mixing board because he believed Abdallah was overcharging for studio time.

Moore was arrested after a pawn shop owner in Detroit said Moore tried to pawn the mixing board for 5,000 dollars a few days after the murder, police said.
