Catherine Hoggle, Mom Charged With Murdering Her Two Children, To Undergo New Psych Exam

MONTGOMERY COUNTY, Md. (WJZ) -- A mother accused of murdering her two children has been ordered by a Montgomery County judge to undergo a new psychiatric evaluation.

Catherine Hoggle is chared in the disappearance of her children, who went missing five years ago.


Prosecutors said doctors have repeatedly found her incompetent to stand trial.

Hoggle's attorney said her evaluations have been going on for four-and-a-half years.
