The attorney for 29-year-old Amber Pasztor has filed a motion for a mental competency evaluation.
The motion was filed with Elkhart Circuit Court late last week. At least two mental health professionals will complete an evaluation to determine if Pasztor is able to understand the criminal case against her, according to our reporting partners at WOWO.
The 29-year-old faces two murder counts in the September 26th killings of 7-year-old Liliana Hernandez and 6-year-old Rene Pasztor. Last week, Elkhart County’s Prosecutor filed for an enhanced sentence of life without the possibility of parole.
Court documents say Pasztor admitted to smothering her two children after abducting them from their home in Fort Wayne.
