A D.C. superior court judge has postponed indefinitely the trial of a woman accused of killing her four daughters and living with the bodies in her southeast Washington rowhouse.
As a result, Weisberg ordered that Jacks be sent to St. Elizabeths Hospital where she'll be evaluated for 45 days.
Weisberg had hoped to begin the trial Dec. 1, but now has scheduled another hearing for Dec. 19.
Jacks' attorneys want her to defend herself by saying she is insane. The judge had ordered that Jacks be evaluated earlier this month. Jacks has been jailed since January when the bodies were found. Authorities believe the girls had been dead since the summer of 2007.
