In re Sims, 069440

Granted a petition for writ of habeas corpus claiming that a prisoner had been incompetent to stand trial. The prisoner, a former attorney who was convicted of murdering her husband in 2006, alleged that her serious mental illness made her incompetent to stand trial at that time. Granting habeas relief, the California Fourth Appellate District remanded to the superior court with directions to hold an evidentiary hearing on the incompetency question.
