Greensburg woman competent to stand trial in child sex case
A Greensburg woman charged with recording herself in a sex act with a young child was ruled competent to stand trial on Tuesday.
Corby Jo Kinzey, 24, was charged along with her ex-boyfriend and another woman of sex counts related to the incident in which police contend she had sexual contact with a 5-year-old boy.
Kinzey is being held in jail without bond as she awaits trial on 35 counts, including, rape, child pornography, conspiracy and other offenses.
Her trial had been delayed for months after Kinzey was evaluated in October and found not to be competent to stand trial. Westmoreland County Judge Christopher Feliciani on Tuesday, after reviewing a doctor’s report, determined Kinzey now could assist with her defense.
A trial date won’t be set until after prosecutors and defense attorney Michael DeMatt meet with the judge next month.
Police contend Kinzey was directed to have sex with the child by her former boyfriend, Charles Jason Hunter, 33. Hunter was charged with eight criminal counts including rape. Hunter is scheduled to appear before Feliciani next month for a status conference.
