ARCATA, — A Northern California woman charged with kicking a 16-month-old girl into the air and against a wall outside a restaurant has been deemed unfit to stand trial.
The Times-Standard of Eureka reports (http://bit.ly/Nq31Sv) that 28-year-old Molly Faye Barnes will be committed to Napa State Hospital. In the meantime, a Humboldt County judge has suspended criminal proceedings against her.
Barnes, a transient, is accused of kicking the child for no reason outside the restaurant in Arcata in April. The girl suffered moderate injuries.
Barnes has pleaded not guilty to charges including attempted homicide.
