A competency exam has been ordered for the woman who allegedly took a baby from Grand Rapids and brought it to Benton Harbor, prompting an Amber Alert.

Iyesha Gibbs, 19, faces charges of kidnapping involving child enticement after she took the one year-old.

She and the child were discovered about 24 hours later at her Benton Harbor home.

At a court hearing Tuesday, Gibbs’ mother, Latonya Gibbs, said the situation was a misunderstanding.

The case is currently waiting for the completion of the competency exam.

If convicted of kidnapping, Gibbs could spend the rest of her life in prison.
