Associated Press: Elizabeth Johnson Declaired Incompetent To Stand Trial

“TEMPE, Ariz. — Two court-appointed doctors say the mother of a missing Arizona baby who’s been missing since December is incompetent to stand trial.

A Maricopa County judge is expected to make a ruling on the doctors’ report soon that could excuse 23-year-old Elizabeth Johnson from participating in further court proceedings involving the disappearance of her son.

Tempe police say Johnson originally claimed she killed the baby and later said she gave the child to a couple in San Antonio.

If alive, Gabriel Johnson would now be a year old. Johnson remained in a downtown Phoenix jail and is charged with kidnapping, child abuse, custodial interference and conspiracy to commit custodial interference.”

    I’m glad the court ruled her to be incompetent. I’m not the liberal hearted softie. Especially when it involves child abuse in any form. BBBUUUTTT….. but but but….. there is something that is keeping my mind and heart open for this particular girl. Perhaps with the “incompetent” label, she will begin to receive the first of much needed therapy. It will take a long time but I’m hoping there is a patient compassionate person that will counsel her. She obviously trust NO ONE. And I can only assume the reason is because she has spent a life of having trust broken. Look what Tammi did to the trust Elizabeth placed with her? Tammi threw it back at Elizabeth and cut ties. I just wonder how many people have just LEFT HER HANGING. And I wonder at her cynical/suspicious behaviour toward law enforcement/courts.

    I know there is a child missing, perhaps dead, because of this person…. I know that. I just feel there are extenuating circumstances and I believe thatTammi Smith is the person that conjoled, confused, manipulated, and directed Elizabeth.

    To me, there is just something else there, I just can’t put my finger on it….

      Stacy,

      It’s so interesting how people are perfectly competent in their daily life –go out and party, hire baby sitters, make hotel reservations, pay their bills, go to the mall, get their nails done, go to work, etc. but after they murder a child, or after they get caught trying to pawn their child off to some stranger, then suddenly they are “incompetent.”

      I don’t buy it for one second and don’t feel sympathy for someone who would give their child to two strangers in a park.

        All very good logical points.

    You know this whole insanity crap is making ME insane!!

    If she had presence of mind to plan and execute this whole thing, then she is more than competent to accept the consequences! PERIOD

    This story made me sick, this woman makes me sick. All because she wanted to get revenge on her ex? If she can’t have the baby then no one can attitude? Umm NO, and I hope she gets the book thrown at her in all the states she committed crimes in during her adventure.
