For the second time since she was charged, Lakeisha Holloway, the woman accused of driving her car onto a busy Strip sidewalk, killing one person and injuring dozens of others, was ordered sent to a state mental health hospital.
Last month, after doctors raised concerns about Holloway’s competency, a judge ordered her to undergo further treatment. The criminal case against her will essentially remain on hold while she is treated, although she will remain in custody, according to court records and her attorneys.
Holloway, who also was ordered to undergo treatment in early 2016, faces 71 counts, including murder with use of a deadly weapon, attempted murder with use of a deadly weapon, battery with use of a deadly weapon resulting in substantial bodily harm and child abuse, neglect or bodily harm.
Jessica Valenzuela, 32, of Buckeye, Arizona, died at University Medical Center from multiple blunt-force injuries as a result of the crash.
