Bemidji Woman Found Unfit For Trial In Child Hypothermia Case

Posted: Updated:
A Bemidji, Minnesota woman has been found incompetent to stand trial for charges surrounding the hypothermia death of her six-year-old cousin in late February.

Instead, a commitment hearing for Rachel Downer will be held on Wednesday.

Downer was supposed to babysit Mercedes Mayfield, but court documents reveal that downer had changed her mind, left a security door to the girl's home slightly open so it wouldn't latch, and watched the little girl go back into the building before leaving for home.

The girl's mother found her dead outside the door the next morning.
