FARMINGTON, Utah (AP) -- A state judge will hear evidence to determine if a Utah woman is competent to stand trial in the strangulation deaths of her two young children.
The hearing for Sun Cha Warhola is set for Friday afternoon before 2nd District Court Judge David M. Connors.
The Layton woman is charged with two counts of aggravated murder in the deaths of 8-year-old James Warhola and 7-year-old Jean Warhola. The bodies of the children were discovered Sept. 8 by their father when he came home from work. He found them and their mother barricaded inside a bedroom of their Layton home about 25 miles north of Salt Lake City.
Police have said the children's bodies showed ligature marks around their necks -- injuries consistent with strangulation.
