RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - A Richmond grandmother charged in connection with the shooting death of a five year old has been found competent to stand trial.

Judy Wright, 41, is facing child neglect charges.

Police say her 10 year old son shot and killed her 5 year old grand daughter, Dominque Carter.

According to doctors, Wright's was unable to stand trial for the 10 months.
