FARMINGTON - The 48-year-old Layton woman who was accused of strangling her two children to death will continue receiving treatment at a state hospital after once again being found incompetent to stand trial.
Sun Cha Warhola's attorney Edward Brass filed a motion Monday morning to move his client's next competency review which was originally scheduled for Monday.
According to the motion, Warhola's most recent evaluation found that she was still incompetent to proceed to trial, "but that there is a substantial probability that she will be restored to competency in the future..."
The state did not contest the results of the evaluation and have agreed to review Warhola's status again on June 5, 2015. Until that time, Warhola will remain in the custody of the Utah State Hospital receiving treatment.
On Sept. 8, 2010, police found Warhola's two children James, 8, and Jean, 7, dead in their Layton home.
Kenneth Warhola had come home to find his wife barricaded inside their son's room with the two children. They were found covered with blankets and strangulation marks around their necks.
Warhola had originally been found incompetent to stand trial in the 2nd District Court of Farmington in May 2011 after her attorney argued that she was mentally ill and did not even recall the incident.
