Mom Competent To Stand Trial

KSAL StaffMay 15, 2015

A judge has ruled that a Kansas woman accused of stabbing her 10-year-old son to death is competent to stand trial.

Sumner County Attorney Kerwin Spencer said Thursday a judge ruled last week that 33-year-old Lindsey Nicole Blansett was able to assist in her trial on murder and aggravated assault charges. She underwent competency tests at Larned State Hospital in Early April. Blansett on Thursday also waived her preliminary hearing.

Blansett is charged with first-degree premeditated murder in the December 2014 death of her son, Caleb, at their Wellington home.

A criminal complaint in the case alleges Blansett decided Caleb’s life would be full of suffering and it would be better for him to go to heaven. She called 911 to report the stabbing.
