Detroit — A criminal responsibility and competency exam was ordered Wednesday for a Detroit woman accused of choking her 2-year-old son to death.

Priyanka Chakraborty, 26, has been charged with felony murder and child abuse. She was arraigned earlier this month on the charges and given a $50,000, 10 percent bond.

The alleged incident occurred Feb. 6 at the woman's home in the 5000 block of Sobieski, where the child was found unresponsive.

Her next court date is April 20.
