BROCKTON, Mass. — A member of an Attleboro religious sect facing second-degree murder charges in the death of her 1-year-old son is expected to appear at a hearing Monday. Karen Roubidoux’s trial has been delayed while she undergoes a psychiatric evaluation. A Brockton Superior Court judge is expected to hear a status report. Robidoux was sent to Taunton State Hospital for the evaluation at her attorney’s request. Joseph Krowski said Robidoux had become increasingly depressed.

Robidoux pleaded not guilty to charges she allowed her infant son, Samuel, to starve to death. Krowski said Robidoux is not criminally responsible because she was brainwashed by other members of the Attleboro-based religious sect. Robidoux’s husband, Jacques, was convicted of first-degree murder in the boy’s death.
