DETROIT — A Detroit woman charged with fatally stabbing her daughter has been found competent to stand trial.
A judge on Wednesday determined a trial can go forward for Semeria Greene after a three-day hearing. She is accused of killing her 8-year-old daughter in December, about five weeks after court officials turned down a request by the state to remove Tameria and her siblings from their home.
The girl's 4-year-old brother told authorities that he witnessed Tameria being stabbed.
Defense attorney Cornelius Pitts plans to appeal the decision.
Greene previously had been found incompetent for trial and underwent mental health exams.
A preliminary examination is set for Aug. 7.
