Mother ruled OK to stand trial

An Indianapolis woman accused of child neglect has been found competent to stand trial. Police say Ebyan Farah, 28, put four of her five children in a closet last September and left them there for 10 hours. Two of the children, a 3-year-old boy and a 5-year-old daughter, died. Farah faces eight felony counts, including two charges of neglect of a dependent resulting in death. Doctors found Farah not competent to stand trial but a judge reversed that decision. She is being held without bond.
