Toulon Teenage Mom To Have Head Tested

Posted by wlpo on October 13, 2012

The mental health of Kendra Meaker will be checked to see if she’s “fit” to stand trial for allegedly abandoning her 3-week old baby.

Meaker’s case came up in court Friday morning in Stark County Court.  A judge ordered a mental-health expert to see if the 19-year old is mentally fit to stand trial for obstructing justice and endangering the health or life of a child.

Meaker set off an Amber Alert on September 28th when she told police someone took her 3-week daughter Mia Thompson out of her car parked outside the Toulon post office.  The baby was found several hours later along a county road alive.  Meaker failed a polygraph test and allegedly told police she made the abduction up.

She’s being held on ten thousand dollars bond.  Meaker’s next court hearing is November 16th.
