CLEBURNE, Texas (AP) - A woman accused of leading authorities on
a high-speed chase that caused her infant daughter's death has been
found incompetent to stand trial.
Aimee Andrea Fisher-Riza faces charges of murder and evading arrest for the April chase. Her daughter, Alexxus Andrea, had been in the SUV unrestrained during the chase. She died after being ejected during the crash in Alvarado.
A psychologist who examined Fisher-Riza this month found she was
agitated, has impaired judgment, illogical thought processes and
was uncooperative and hostile.
In a report, the psychologist said Fisher-Riza suffers from
bipolar disorder and has psychotic features.
Fisher-Riza, of Keene, had been found competent to stand trial
during a June examination. But she discontinued her medication,
causing her mental state to decline.
If Fisher-Riza receives proper treatment, the psychologist said
she can become competent to stand trial.
