Durban – Megan Prins will exchange her prison uniform for a hospital coat on Wednesday morning.
The mother of the Morningside, 34, who reportedly overwhelmed her son Sloan and subsequently suffocated him in a uMhlanga pension in June, is on her way to the Napier hospital in Pietermaritzburg, where she expected to undergo a psychiatric assessment.
Prins made a brief appearance on Wednesday in the Durban Magistrate's Court.
She is confronted with murder attacks.
The Sunday Tribune had reported that the mother had tried to take her own life by tearing her wrists after the death of her son.
The owner of the uMhlanga pension, who did not want to be mentioned, said that their family had been traumatized by the incident and that they had to ask for advice.
Prins, a project manager in the medical field, was taken to Fort Napier by the research officer.
She is waiting for a trial prison in the Westville Prison.
The assessment is expected to be carried out in the next 30 days.
The case was adjourned on 25 September.
