A mother accused of killing her disabled infant by throwing him from a hospital parking structure was ordered to undergo psychological evaluation on Friday.

Sonia Hermosillo was to have entered a plea on charges of murder and felony child abuse.

Instead, a court commissioner assigned two psychologists after her attorney said he believes she's unable to assist in her defense.

The doctors will report on her mental health at a competency hearing Nov. 18.
