A psychiatrist retained by Maryland prosecutors has concluded that a woman accused of killing two of her children remains mentally unfit for trial nearly five years after the young children went missing.
The Washington Post reports that a recent court filing by the Montgomery County State's Attorney's Office says 32-year-old Catherine Hoggle "remains dangerous" and isn't currently competent to stand trial on murder charges.
Prosecutors say psychiatrist Christiane Tellefsen concluded Hoggle was improving and is "approaching a level of understanding in which she could be considered competent."
Two of Hoggle's three children — 2-year-old Jacob and 3-year-old Sarah — disappeared in September 2014 and haven't been found. Hoggle was the last person known to be with them. Police have said Hoggle refused to tell them where the children were.
