BUFFALO, NY (WKBW) - The attorney representing Eva Cummings says his client is ready to accept responsibility for the brutal murder of her daughter.
It was back on January 21st, 23-year old Laura Cummings was found dead in her North Collins home. Her mother, Eva, was charged with the murder.
Laura's half-brother, Luke Wright, was also accused of torturing and raping her.
Defense attorneys for Luke Wright argued that Luke himself was a victim of abuse and is not competent to stand trial. However, a forensic psychiatrist who testified Friday stated that Wright is in fact competent to stand trial.
A judge will make a ruling at a later date on whether or not Wright is competent to stand trial for the alleged crimes.
Eva Cummings is expected to plead guilty next Wednesday.
