ALLEGED baby thief Peta-Gay Ffrench entered the Kingston and St Andrew Parish Court yesterday smiling at everyone, apparently unaware of the gravity of the charge against her.

When the case was mentioned, Chief Parish Judge Vaughn Smith ordered that she should have a psychiatric evaluation done, following a request made by her attorney Rachel Donaldson.

The lawyer, who said she got limited instruction from Ffrench, also requested disclosure.

The psychiatric evaluation is expected to be ready by March 13.

The accused was subsequently ordered to have her fingerprints taken. She was remanded in custody.

Ffrench, 27, of Harkers Hall, St Catherine was charged with child stealing last Monday.

She was taken into custody two Tuesdays ago when she attempted to register the baby at the Registrar General’s Department in Twickenham Park, St Catherine.

A subsequent DNA test confirmed that the baby belonged to a couple whose child was snatched from the Victoria Jubilee Hospital on January 9.

The baby boy has since been reunited with his parents.
