Judge orders sanity evaluation for mother accused of elder abuse
BATON ROUGE - The mother and daughter that was arrested for the death of 82 year old Bessie Looney, appeared in court today for a sanity hearing.
Lauren and Joleslie Looney was arrested in 2014 after Bessie Looney (Joleslie's mother) was found dead in their home, after living under deplorable conditions.
Today, a judge ruled that Joleslie will be sent to a hospital and looked over by doctors to determine if she was sane during the death of her mother.
The judge decided to revisit Lauren Looney's hearing because all of her medical documentation was not provided in the hearing, Thursday morning.
Joleslie Looney will appear back in court on July 11 and Lauren Looney will have another hearing on May 3.
