Judge: Maine girl, 11, not competent for trial

SKOWHEGAN, Maine (AP) — A Maine judge has ruled that an 11-year-old girl charged with manslaughter in the death of an infant remains incompetent to stand trial.

The Morning Sentinel (http://bit.ly/1155a1d) reports the judge said Friday the Fairfield girl’s detention and conditions of release are unchanged, pending further discussion of her ability to stand trial.

The girl was 10 when she was charged with manslaughter in the death of 3-month-old Brooklyn Foss-Greenaway in July. The infant was staying at the home of the girl’s mother, who was babysitting her.

The infant’s mother was told she died from suffocation and had trace amounts of a medication that the girl had been taking in her system.

The girl’s lawyer could not be reached for comment Saturday.
