A competency hearing has been rescheduled for a 60-year-old suburban Detroit mother charged in the slaying and dismemberment of her adult son whose body parts were dumped in trash bags along a roadside.
WDIV-TV and WWJ-AM report that a Macomb County judge gave Donna Scrivo's attorney 60 more days to have an independent competency examination conducted. A hearing had been scheduled for Tuesday.
The St. Clair Shores woman is charged with first-degree murder and dismemberment of Ramsay Scrivo. Five bags containing his body parts were dumped in early February in St. Clair County's China and St. Clair townships, about 50 miles northeast of Detroit. An electric saw also was found in one of the bags.
The 32-year-old Ramsay Scrivo was reported missing by his mother on Jan. 26.
