COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - A man accused of killing two family members in Fort Mitchell is set to undergo a psychological evaluation.

Travon Harmon appeared before a Russell County judge Friday morning for the crime.

Sheriff's deputies say Harmon shot his grandfather Leroy and his sister Bionka on January 5.

Investigators say the shootings happened at the family's home on Bradley Drive after Harmon got into a fight with a childhood friend, Devonte Howard.

But court proceedings hint that Harmon's possible history of mental illness prompted the shootings, not an altercation.

Howard was also shot but was not killed.
