The trial for a woman accused of killing an 83-year-old man has been further delayed because she has been sent to the state hospital to determine her competency.
Jessica Livingston, 24, is charged with an open count of murder in the June 2007 death of Jose Apodaca. She and Dolores Salazar, 19, allegedly robbed Apodaca and then dragged him with their car.
Livingston had been scheduled to attend a status hearing on her case on Nov. 17, but four days before, she tried to kill herself in the San Miguel County jail, according to court documents.
