It was a virtual hearing in Boone County Court on Monday for the attorney representing the woman charged with murdering a student from the University of Missouri, and setting his body on fire.
Emma Adams is charged with second degree murder for the death of 21-year-old Samuel Michael Clemons this past January.
Adams’s attorneys want her committed to a mental health facility.
A court ordered mental evaluation was performed on November 6th.
Her attorneys filed a motion to commit her to the department of mental health the same day.
The judge is reviewing the defense motion and is not expected to schedule a hearing for six months.
This is being done at the request of Adams’ attorneys.
