Baby kidnap suspect to undergo psych evaluation


The woman accused of kidnapping a baby in Trois-Rivieres on Monday night appeared in court this afternoon.

21-year-old Valérie Poulin-Collins faces kidnapping and abduction charges.

She appeared tired and pale when she arrived for her court appearance. She did not enter a plea — she was deemed unfit to be formally arraigned on the two charges she faces.

Poulin-Collins' lawyer has requested a psychiatric evaluation for his client.

She was released from hospital this morning — after an apparent drug overdose.

Her next court date is a week from today -- June 5.

She's also due to return to court on June 30 and July 4 to face sesveral other charges unrelated to the kidnapping — including drug possession and theft.

    Maybe a 20 year vacation in a jail will refresh her. The kidnapping was all strategically planned. She had a nurse's uniform and knew how to pull it off. PREMEDITATED!!!
