LEAVENWORTH, Kan. (AP) _ A judge has ruled that a northeast Kansas woman accused of leaving her baby alone in an alley is competent to stand trial.

An attorney for 28-year-old Elizabeth A. Michaud of Leavenworth argued earlier this year that Michaud was not competent to stand trial.

Michaud is charged with aggravated endangering a child after she allegedly left her son alone May 3 in a Leavenworth alley. Prosecutors believe she was under the influence of drugs or alcohol at the time.

On Friday, a Leavenworth County judge found Michaud was competent to stand trial after receiving a report on a recent evaluation she was given.

The Leavenworth Times reports (http://bit.ly/VmilmD ) a pretrial conference was scheduled for Jan. 25.
