A Calhoun man has died in William R. Sharpe, Jr. Hospital in Weston, where he was committed in August, 2005.

Bucky Dale Arthur, 50, of Annamoriah was declared incompetent to stand trial after going to the West Virginia State Police Detachment in Wood County armed with guns.

Sources told the Herald that Arthur was apparently discovered dead in his bed.

Coroner Ed Messenger was called to the case and the body has been taken to the State Medical Examiner's office to determine the cause of death.

Jack Clohan, CEO of Sharpe Hospital, declined to comment on Arthur's death, indicating it was a violation of policy.

Arthur had been charged with attempted murder and wanton endangerment.

At the time of his commitment, William Kiger, Arthur's attorney, said he requested the competency examination after speaking with Arthur and Arthur's mother, sister and employer.

"He is not criminally responsible for what he did," Kiger said.

Arthur entered the state police barracks saying that unknown individuals should be arrested for treason. He was reportedly wearing Ruger Redhawk 45s in what was described as western holsters.

When officers arrived at the barracks he was asked to remove the guns. He refused.

Arthur had several other weapons in his car, officers said.

When troopers attempted to disarm Arthur, according to reports, he allegedly tried to pull one of the pistols.

Funeral arrangements will be completed at Stump Funeral Home in Grantsville.
