A judge had ordered a psychological evaluation and competency hearing for Cami Moyer.
Published April 16

A Spring Hill woman charged with murder in the hot-car death of her baby son was found competent to continue to trial, a court found earlier this month.

In January, a judge ordered a psychological evaluation and competency hearing for Cami Moyer. At an April 5 pre-trial hearing, the court found that she was fit to stand trial, the court record shows.

Moyer's son, 9-month-old Keyton O'Callaghan, died in August. He was found inside a car parked outside Moyer's Elgin Boulevard home. She was arrested nearly two months later and faces third-degree murder and child-neglect charges. Law enforcement records showed she had a history of leaving her children unattended in cars.

At the April 5 hearing, Moyer also waived her right to a speedy trial, the court record shows. Her next pre-trial hearing is set for June 28.
