WELLINGTON, Kansas – A Wellington mother, accused of brutally murdering her 10-year-old son, made an appearance in court Thursday.

Lindsey Nicole Blansett is charged with first-degree murder in the death of her 10-year-old son Caleb last month. According to the prosecutors, Blansett took a rock and knife and struck Caleb with both until he was dead.

At Thursday’s appearance, the judge allowed a motion to have Blansett’s competency evaluated. She will be evaluated by a “local provider”, but the specifics were not disclosed at the time.

Her next court appearance is set for Jan. 29 at 1:30 p.m.

Blansett’s first appearance was last month, but it was cut short when her defense asked for more time, and the judge continued the proceedings.
