Will Alicia Englert Stand Trial?


SALT LAKE CITY, Utah (ABC4 Utah)- A Kearns woman accused of throwing away her newborn baby was in court Monday.

The hearing was meant to determine if Alicia Englert is competent to stand trial.

The competency report is done, but now prosecutors need time to review it.

So, yet another date has been set. A scheduling for another competency review will happen in October. From there they will decide when in January Englert is due back in court.

Englert has admitted to putting her baby in a neighbors trash can after she gave birth in 2014. The baby girl survived.
