JACKSON HOLE, Wyo. (AP) - A 15-year-old boy accused of molesting a toddler at his mother’s day care has been found competent to stand trial.

The Jackson Hole News And Guide reports (https://bit.ly/1DwzzZN ) that a judge had ordered the teen to undergo an examination after hearing testimony that he may suffer from an undiagnosed mental illness.

Court documents state that the Wyoming State Hospital found that the teenager had no mental problems preventing him from aiding in his defense.

The boy has been accused by the toddler’s parents of touching their child inappropriately.

A hearing has yet to be scheduled on whether the case will be moved to juvenile court.

The boy’s mother continues to operate her day care, but on the condition that her son doesn’t come into contact with the children.
