MADISON (WKOW) -- A Madison woman charged with leaving her elderly sister to die will appear in court again.
Prosecutors charged 72-year-old Veronica King with leaving her 72-year-old sister, Mary Coleman, on the floor to die after Coleman fell in King's house in May 2009. They've also accused her of withdrawing about $6,400 from the sisters' shared bank account that summer. King faces a number of charges, including first-degree reckless homicide and fraud.
Dane County Circuit Judge Julie Genovese has scheduled a competency hearing for King on Friday.
Prosecutors charged King's son, Steven King, in Coleman's death as well after investigators said he told them he watched TV while Coleman lay on the floor. Genovese ruled in October he wasn't competent to stand trial.
