WELLINGTON, Kan. (AP) - A Kansas woman accused of stabbing her 10-year-old son to death will undergo a mental competency evaluation at Larned State Hospital.

A Sumner County judge on Thursday ordered that 33-year-old Lindsey Nicole Blansett of Wellington be evaluated at Larned after a Sumner County mental health group recommended that the evaluation be done at a state facility.

Blansett is charged with first-degree murder in the death of her son, Caleb, on Dec. 14 at their Wellington home.

She called 911 to report the stabbing. A criminal complaint says Blansett told investigators she believed Caleb’s life would be full of suffering and it would be better for him to go to heaven. She allegedly hit him with a rock before stabbing him several times.
