DETROIT (AP) - A competency hearing for a Detroit man charged in the slaying of his estranged wife whose two children are missing has been adjourned.

The Wayne County prosecutor’s office says a psychiatrist evaluating Erin Justice had not completed an independent forensic report ahead of Tuesday’s hearing.

The competency hearing and preliminary examination on whether there’s enough evidence to send the case to trial have been rescheduled for May 5.

Alicia Fox’s 6-year-old daughter, Kaylah Hunter, and her 8-month-old son, Kristian Justice, have been missing since late May. Fox’s decomposed body was found about two weeks later in a vacant house about 6 miles from their home.

The woman’s relatives think Justice, who is Kristian’s father, knows where the children are, although he hasn’t been charged in their disappearance.
