2nd Mental Evaluation In Child Stabbing Case

KSAL StaffAugust 20, 2015

A Wellington woman accused of stabbing her 10-year-old son to death is set to undergo a second mental evaluation.

Lindsey Nicole Blansett will spend 30 to 45 days undergoing psychological testing to determine if she had a mental defect that rendered her incapable of premeditation. She’s charged with first-degree premeditated murder and aggravated assault for the death of Caleb Blansett last December.

Sumner County Attorney Kerwin Spencer said Tuesday that he asked for the evaluation after Blansett’s attorney filed a notice of his plan to assert his client had a mental disease or defect as a possible defense in the case.

This evaluation is different from the competency exam she previously underwent to determine if she was fit to stand trial. A judge ruled that she is competent to face her charges.
