The North Buffalo man accused of blowing up his own home in a botched suicide attempt has been deemed competent to stand trial.
On Monday, 73-year-old Santo Cok waived his right to a felony hearing.
Cok is facing arson, reckless endangerment and criminal mischief charges over April's explosion on Covington Road.
In May, a judge ordered he undergo a mental health examination before the case cold move forward.
Investigators say he disconnected a gas line and lit and candle to try and commit suicide.
The explosion destroyed Cok's home and seriously damaged two neighboring houses. No one was hurt.
