The Fort Wayne mother accused of smothering her two children to death as part of an Amber Alert saga had her court date pushed back Thursday.

Prosecutors are awaiting the results of a mental health exam for Amber Pasztor, according to WNDU.

The results of that exam could determine when Pasztor will go to trial. She has a date set in January, but the defense is concerned about Pasztor’s comprehension of what’s going on. Her public defender is also not sure if Pasztor is taking her murder charges seriously.

Elkhart police arrested Pasztor when she turned herself in after being sought in an Amber Alert. She took her two children, 7-year-old Lilliana Hernandez and 6-year-old Rene Pasztor, from a home in Churubusco. She’s also admitted to the media that she shot and killed 66-year-old Frank Macomber and took his car, though she’s not charged with his murder yet.

Pasztor will now be in court on Dec. 29.
