An Olathe woman is being evaluated to determine if she is competent to stand trial for allegedly trying to kill her three children.
Therese Roever is charged in Johnson County District Court with attempted capital murder for allegedly giving them some type of medication in February.
Two of the three children would have died if they had not been found and rushed to a hospital, according to court documents.
Rover's attorney requested the competency evaluation and it was ordered by District Judge Sara Welch.
In order to be competent, a criminal defendant must be able to understand the nature of court proceedings and be able to assist in their own defense.
Roever, 37, is being held in the Johnson County Detention Center and will be evaluated there.
A preliminary hearing previously scheduled for Friday will be continued.
