Plymouth — Competency evaluations in the case of a 15-year-old girl and her 23-year-old boyfriend charged with conspiring to kill the girl’s family are incomplete.

Plymouth District Court Judge Michael Gerou had expected to be able to rule Friday if the trial of Roksana Sikorski and Angelo Rivera could move forward. But the failure to complete the examinations has pushed the case back.

“The exam we believe is going to take place now on January 23 at 8:30 in the morning,” Gerou said.

Sikorski and Rivera weren’t in court Friday.

The pair is accused of trying to kill Sikorski’s family at their home in the Heather Hills subdivision around 2 a.m. on Oct. 17.

According to a police report, Sikorksi was allegedly guided through the stabbing of her younger brother by Rivera, who stood outside at a window. A portion of the report alleges Sikorski was worried whether the knife she used was sufficient to do the job.

“Is this sharp enough?” she asked Rivera, according to the report filed by the Western Wayne (Law Enforcement) Task Force. The knife in question was a 6- to 8-inch filet knife.

Sikorksi’s younger sister, 11, screamed that her brother had been stabbed, saying: “Lucas got stabbed by Roxy,” according to the report.

Sikorksi was a student at Plymouth-Canton Community Schools. She and Rivera fled the home after the attack and were picked up by two of his friends and taken to a home in southwest Detroit, where they were eventually arrested.
