Letecia Stauf, who was charged with one murder in Colorado Springs last year for the death of her 11-year-old son-in-law, tried on Tuesday’s district court judge’s decision related to the killing of Ganon Stauf. Has the ability to stand in.
Stauf underwent a second mental health assessment at the request of a lawyer after her first trial revealed her eligibility for trial. Judge Gregory Werner said on Tuesday that the results of the second evaluation were consistent with the first evaluation, allowing the case to proceed to trial.
Her next appearance is scheduled for March 11.
Stauf initially reported the disappearance of Ganon on January 27, 2020, prompting a large-scale search from local governments.
According to the arrest affidavit, investigators suspect she had killed her son-in-law in her bedroom the day she reported her missing.
Stauf was arrested on March 2 in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, and 16 days later a body believed to belong to Ganon was found in Florida Panhandle.
Authorities have not stated how the body arrived in Florida.
