Harlingen Man Ruled "Competent" to Stand Trial
Wed, 23 Sep 2009 13:19:03 GMT —
After a brief postponement, the trial resumed Tuesday for a Harlingen man accused of not getting medical treatment for his 2-year-old daughter.
A psychologist testified that Roberto Alvarez is competent to stand trial.
Alvarez is accused of doing nothing after his daughter, Mariah, was injured from a beating.
Mariah later died from her injuries.
The girl's mother, Melissa Lucio, was convicted in 2008 and sentenced to death.
Testimony continues Wednesday.
