Court hearing postponed for Homewood murder suspect

BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) -

A court hearing is postponed for the woman accused of killing a Homewood mother and her two kids.

Homewood police say Ana Patricia Dominguez killed 30-year-old Araceli Juarez and her two sons inside of their apartment at the Abbey at Boulder Ridge in December. Authorities say her motive was to rob the family. On Tuesday, her case was up for a status update.

Dominguez's lawyer told the judge that mental evaluations have not been performed on the Spanish-speaking woman because doctors have not found a qualified interpreter to do it. Currently, Dominguez is being held at Bryce Hospital.

The judge reset the court date for December 9th.
