MADISON (AP) -- A judge says a Madison woman accused of letting her sister die is incompetent to stand trial.
Prosecutors say Veronica King left her 72-year-old sister, Mary Coleman, on the floor to die after Coleman fell in King's house in May 2009. They say she withdrew about $6,400 from the sisters' shared bank account that summer.
King, now 72, faces a number of charges, including first-degree reckless homicide and fraud.
Dane County Circuit Judge Julie Genovese on Tuesday suspended her case until she gains competency. She ordered King receive treatment and submit a progress report every three months.
Assistant District Attorney Robert Kaiser didn't immediately return a message.
Prosecutors charged King's son, Steven King, in Coleman's death, too, but Genovese ruled in October he wasn't competent to stand trial.
