Gabriel's mother competent to stand trial

Posted: Updated:

The mother of missing baby Gabriel was back in court Friday morning.

Elizabeth Johnson still didn't offer up any details about where her son might be.

The judge in the case ruled Friday that as long as she gets her medication, she is competent and will stand trial in September.

Johnson hired a new attorney, named Marc Victor, who asked for more time to familiarize himself with the case.

The case could get delayed even further because the judge will soon be transferred out of criminal cases.

Gabriel would be nearly three years old now.

Johnson at one point said she killed him but now said she gave him away to strangers in Texas.

No sign of him has ever surfaced.
