Three people charged in the death of a Louisiana woman with cerebral palsy have been ordered to undergo mental evaluations.
The Town Talk reports a judge issued the order Monday, temporarily pausing all case proceedings until the evaluations.
A man, his wife and the victim’s mother have been indicted on charges of second-degree murder in the November 2018 death of the 25-year-old woman.
Deputies responding to a report of a natural death found the woman in such a state that they alerted detectives.
The trio was arrested days later.
