SKOWHEGAN, Maine (AP) - A Maine judge is considering whether a girl who was 11 when she was charged in a baby’s death is competent to stand trial.

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

The judge previously ruled twice that the girl, now 12, is not competent to stand trial.

The Morning Sentinel reports (https://bit.ly/O1ucIL ) that the judge did not issue a ruling during a closed competency hearing on Thursday.

The infant’s mother was told the baby died in July 2012 from suffocation and had trace amounts of a medication that the girl had been taking in her system.
