FARMINGTON, Utah (AP) — A Utah woman charged with killing her children will face trial after years under state mental health care. The Standard-Examiner reported Monday that 53-year-old Sun Cha Warhola was deemed competent Monday to stand trial in the 2010 strangulation deaths of her two children.

Warhola has been in Utah State Hospital since 2011.

It will be in Ogden, Utah, this week for an event marking the 150th anniversary of the completion of the Transcontinental Railroad.
