A doctor says a 26-year-old Florida man charged with killing his young daughter by throwing her off a bridge over Tampa Bay remains incompetent to stand trial.

John Jonchuck didn't attend Tuesday's hearing. The Tampa Bay Times (http://bit.ly/1SxpuO4 ) reports he will return to a state mental hospital to continue treatment.

Public defender Jessica Manuele says another hearing to determine whether Jonchuck will face first-degree murder charges is now scheduled for Oct. 18.

Police arrested Jonchuck shortly after they say he dropped 5-year-old Pheobe into Tampa Bay in 2015.
