APALACHICOLA -- A judge plans to hold a hearing on the competency of a German woman to stand trial in the bathtub drowning of her 5-year-old grandson while vacationing on St. George Island.
Three mental health experts concluded last week that 72-year-old Marianne Bordt is incompetent to stand trial, but there's disagreement on how to try to bring her to competency.
Circuit Judge Angela Dempsey has set the hearing for Dec. 13 in Apalachicola.
The woman, from Nufringen, Germany, is charged with first-degree murder in the January death on St. George Island of Camden Hiers.
Police said Bordt told them she didn't want to see the boy grow up in a divorced home. Camden's parents had joint custody but he lived mostly with his mother in Roswell, Ga.
