REXBURG, Idaho (AP) — A woman accused of killing her father at his southeastern Idaho home last month has been found to be incompetent to stand trial.

The Standard Journal reports Jessica Conser, who is charged with murder for the death of Matthew Travao, will be placed in a secure mental health facility for further evaluation.

Madison County defense attorney Jim Archibald says Conser was evaluated and found "not mentally stable to proceed." Treatment at the mental health facility will aim to develop competency for Conser to possibly stand trial later.

Authorities say Conser drove from Montana to Idaho last month and shot her father as he slept inside his Hibbard home.
