SEATTLE -- A woman accused of killing six family members on Christmas Eve 2007 has been deemed mentally competent for a second time to stand trial, The Seattle Times reports.

Michele Anderson’s parents, her brother and his wife and the couple’s two children were found slain in Anderson’s parents’ home.

Anderson and her former boyfriend, Joseph McEnroe, are charged with six counts of aggravated first-degree murder. If convicted, both could face the death penalty or life in prison without parole.

Anderson’s attorney argued that Anderson is highly emotional and unable to assist in her defense for her trial.
