More than 200 Cameron County residents were summoned to court today to possibly be chosen for a panel that will decide if John Allen Rubio is mentally capable of standing a second trial. Rubio was once convicted of capital murder for the deaths of his common-law wife's three children that were decapitated. That conviction was overturned by an appeals court in 2007. Rubio pleaded in that trial not guilty by reason of insanity.
