TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - The suspect in a Lawrence homicide is being evaluated at Larned State Hospital after a judge found her incompetent to stand trial for a burglary case in Topeka.

A Shawnee County District judge committed 38-year-old Angelica Kulp, of Lawrence, to Larned before she can be tried on misdemeanor theft and felony burglary charges. Authorities say she entered a man’s home, took money from his change jar and then hid in the closet.

Kulp is charged in Douglas County with first-degree murder in the July death of Christine Kaplan at the victim’s home in Lawrence.

The Lawrence Journal-World reports (https://bit.ly/10URSW7 ) the homicide case against Kulp in Douglas County District Court will not proceed until her case in Shawnee County is resolved.
