WELLINGTON, Kansas – A Wellington woman accused of killing her own son will get another mental evaluation. Ten-year-old Caleb Blansett died December 15th.

His mother, Lindsay Blansett, had called 911 saying she had just killed her son.

In court Thursday, a judge ordered Blansett to be sent to Larned State Hospital for a mental evaluation. A preliminary exam in Sumner County had already determined her competency to stand trial is in question. The judge will hold another hearing in about 90 days.
