Mother accused of killing children deemed incompetent for trial

MIRAMAR, FLA. (WSVN) - A mother accused of killing her two children in Miramar has been deemed incompetent to stand trial.

A judge ruled that Sophia Hines is not competent to stand trial on charges of premeditated murder.

The 40-year old will now be hospitalized until she is deemed well enough for her case to continue.

Hines was arrested earlier this month after, police said, she admitted to suffocating her 7-month-old and 3-year-old children with a bed sheet.
