(AP) – A Lake-area woman accused of slashing her baby daughter’s throat and wrists will undergo a mental evaluation to see if she’s competent to stand trial.
Camdenton woman, 40-year-old Bradie R. Simpson’s trial was supposed to start this week. A judge granted a delay for the evaluation.
Simpson was arrested in February 2012 after her son reported his mother and his 9-month-old sister missing. Searchers found Simpson sitting against a tree holding the wounded baby, who survived after surgery.
Simpson had told a pastor months earlier she feared she would harm the child. The pastor said Simpson made references to demons.
