YOLO COUNTY –
What was supposed to be a preliminary hearing for Aqualin Talamantes, the woman accused of killing her own daughter, turned out to just be a brief visit inside of the Yolo County Courthouse Friday morning.
Talamantes sat silently, only speaking with the Sheriff’s Deputy and her public defender.
The reason for the short visit: Judge David Reid allowed the public defender’s motion to allow her client to undergo psychological evaluation to determine if she is competent enough to stand trial.
A few family members of Talamantes were in court today. As they left they simply said no comment, adding they will talk after the complete trial is over
The preliminary hearing has been rescheduled for Dec. 9 at 9 a.m., pending Talamantes’ psychological evaluation.
