BROWNSVILLE, Texas — Her lawyers say a Texas woman accused in the grisly deaths of her three young children is now competent to stand trial.

Angela Camacho is, 24, accused of helping her common-law husband suffocate, stab and behead her three young children.

She is charged in the deaths of Julissa Quezada, 3; John Esthefan Rubio, 1; and Mary Jane Rubio, 2 months.

The common-law husband has been sentenced to death in last year’s killings.

Camacho had been described as having severe depression with psychotic features.

But The Brownsville Herald reported that her lawyers say a psychiatrist has had her on medication for a year, and in his opinion, she’s competent to face trial. A competency hearing is tentatively set for this month, but the lawyers say it may not be needed.

A hearing on whether Camacho is mentally retarded is also upcoming. The defense hopes to prove Camacho is retarded to avoid a possibility of the death penalty.
