FARMINGTON – The Layton woman accused of strangling her two children on Sept. 8, 2010 is still not competent to stand trial.
Sun Cha Warhola, 48, was scheduled to appear in 2nd District Court on Monday, but her attorney, Edward Brass, filed a motion earlier in the morning to move Warhola’s competency hearing to the fall of 2015.
In his motion, Brass said his client is still incompetent to stand trial, but that there is “a substantial probability that she will be restored to competency in the future.” She has been receiving treatment at the Utah State Hospital since May 2011.
Warhola is charged with two counts of first-degree felony aggravated murder for allegedly strangling her children, James, 8, and Jean, 7, in their Layton home.
Her husband, Kenneth Warhola, came home to find Sun Cha Warhola barricaded inside the son’s room with both children. They were found lying on the bed covered with blankets.
Sun Cha Warhola was found incompetent to stand trial in May 2011 after her attorney argued she was mentally incompetent and had no recollection of the matter.
