An 11-year-old girl charged with manslaughter in the death of an infant was ordered Monday to undergo testing to determine whether she is competent to stand trial.
Amanda Huard and attorney John Youney enter Skowhegan District Court on Monday for a hearing for her daughter Kelli Murphy, 11, who has been charged with manslaughter in the death of Brooklyn Foss-Greenaway.
The girl, Kelli Murphy, in her first court appearance since she was charged in the death of 3-month-old Brooklyn Foss-Greenaway, entered a "no answer" plea to the charge in Skowhegan District Court.
Murphy, of Fairfield, spent most of her time in the courtroom with downcast eyes, sitting with her attorney. Brooklyn's mother, Nicole Greenaway, looked on from a few yards away.
The infant died in early July during an overnight stay in the home of Murphy's mother, Amanda Huard, who was also present in the courtroom. Witnesses said Foss-Greenaway was alone with Murphy, then 10, in her room in the hours before police responded to a 911 call placed by Huard.
