A JetBlue pilot who ran out of the cockpit screaming will stand trial.

A Texas judge found Clayton Osbon, of Richmond Hill, mentally competent to stand trial, but he must undergo a mental evaluation to seal the decision.

Osbon has been charged with interfering with a flight crew back after screaming about terrorism and religion on a march flight.

Earlier this week, 10 passengers sued JetBlue over the incident.
