A 22 year old Shawano woman charged with neglect in the death of her son will undergo a mental evaluation. Catherine R. Barker was scheduled to have her preliminary hearing Tuesday. Instead it was postponed so Barker could meet with psychologist and undergo a mental competency exam before the next court date. District Attorney Gregory Parker:
Barker is charged with neglect of a child, not reporting the death and attempting to move, hide or bury the body. Barker will return to court for her evaluation Nov. 12. Her bond is set at $100,000 cash.
