HAMPTON. Va. (WTKR) -- Julia Tomlin, charged with the murder of her 2-year-old son, is fit to stand trial, a judge ruled Wednesday.
The Commonwealth's Attorney said a judge ruled that Tomlin is fit for trial after she underwent a mental competency evaluation.
Tomlin was arrested last summer, days after she reported her 2-year-old son Noah missing. His body was found more than a week later inside the Hampton Steam Plant.
Tomlin was charged three felony child neglect counts; then in October, murder and unlawful disposal of a body charges were added.
A new trial date has not been set.
The Commonwealth’s Attorney believes the child was tortured, WAVY reports.
