EL PASO COUNTY, Colo. (KDVR) -- Letecia Stauch, the woman accused of killing her 11-year-old stepson Gannon Stauch, will undergo a mental competency evaluation, which was announced during a status hearing Friday morning.
During Friday's court proceedings, prosecutors filed a solicitation to commit escape charge against Letecia Stauch, alleging that she offered to pay a fellow inmate up to $75,000 to help her escape from the El Paso County jail, the Denver Post reports.
The defense filed a sealed motion around 4:45 p.m. Thursday raising the issue of Stauch's competency, according to the judge. The next scheduled court appearance is 90 days from now, or September 8. If the test is completed sooner, Stauch could appear in court before then. In the meantime, she will be moved out of the jail and into the state hospital, where she will be tested.
