Woman accused of killing newborn to face competency evaluation

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A woman accused of killing her newborn at a Kohl's store will undergo a competency evaluation before her case moves forward.

Jessica Price's trial was originally set to start Tuesday, but her attorneys asked the judge for the competency evaluation.

Price was working at the Hillview Kohl's store in August of 2013 when the baby was found in a restroom trash can.

Police say Price suffocated the baby girl, who was born full-term and healthy.

Price is due back in court in August.
