Prosecutors are asking for a separate mental fitness examination for a former Quincy woman charged in the 2017 death of her 8-year-old son.

Court records show the motion was filed Thursday to have Aushena Warren examined by the state. Warren previously had undergone a fitness exam by the Missouri Psychiatric Rehabilitation Center after her attorneys filed a notice they plan to present a defense of mental disease or defect.

Warren, 31, was indicted in January 2018 on one count of first-degree murder and one count of abandonment of a corpse in the drowning death of her son, Audrick Warren.

The indictment alleges Aushena Warren drowned her son. A probable cause statement in the case said police were called June 13, 2017, to a home where paramedics declared the boy dead.

Audrick's father and Aushena Warren's husband, Roderick Warren said he received a FaceTime call from his other son saying he could not find his mother. Roderick said he returned home, where he found Audrick, wearing underwear and socks, lying unresponsive in a bathtub full of water.

Court documents allege Aushena Warren left a note explaining how the "financial pressures the family was under was her fault and she did not think they made enough money." It further stated that she feared the children would be taken by the state and put up for adoption.

Aushena Warren jumped off the Bond Bridge in Kansas City just before 10 a.m. June 13, 2017. She survived the fall and was taken to a hospital for treatment.

She reportedly told detectives that she suffered from bipolar disorder and had not been taking her medicine. When asked who was left in charge of her children, she reportedly became emotional.

What a beautiful boy. Terrible name but a gorgeous child. He would have fought her too.
I hope they find her competent to stand trial. It was her choice to stop taking her meds.
Unless they could not afford them, no disability, and I know she didn’t qualify for Medicaid.. there are programs out there but they are NOT openly promoted.. my mom’s meds were 2500 a month before here insurance with disability kicked in and that took a year.. NOT taking her side.. just saying there’s more than dammit I don’t need those meds

Bipolar disorder causes people to not take their meds, so the “decision” is heavily influenced by the mental illness itself. Some people are addicted to the mania.

She seems like she might be a perfect candidate for the mental health facility in prison from everything I read in the article.

If this is true then I have a little bit of sympathy, but I still feel she should be punished for this tragedy. Resources exist. It’s a matter of seeking them out. We all have the Internet. She could have sought help in secret if stigma were an issue.

That’s absolutely fucking absurd. My little brother has bipolar I and he doesn’t have health insurance. Canada is known to have some of the highest prescription drug prices in the world. I pay for his meds; it’s 165$ a month for a mood stabilizer, an antipsychotic, and an antidepressant. All brand name. Y’all need to fucking revolt or something. Absurd.

My mother was horrible before meds.. once we could get her on programs I ran myself into the ground finding while working full time raising two kids loosing a son and a dying father and her disability kicked in my mother has NEVER ONCE quit her meds.. adjustments yes but quit NO.. they didn’t own a computer and my mother has a flip phone she still can’t turn on!

Why the fuck did that man let her watch the kid alone anyways?! Obviously she has issues that her significant other would notice. Too bad she didn't die instead of that innocent kid, and fuck that sperm donor.
Wow way to jump to blaming the father. You don’t have any idea what signs or symptoms of distress the mother was exhibiting. And sperm donor? Really? He is her husband and the kids father who was at work providing for his family.

There are a lot of unknowns at this time.

I think a parent who knowingly has a child with a person with a significant mental health issue should safe guard their children.

I would think that the husband/father would know the signals that his wife is off her medication and that the child was old enough to report to the father what is going on in the home.

Why was this child specifically targeted and if there were financial issues going on in the home.

I also am bipolar. My Latuda alone is $1300 before I meet my deductible. Not even counting my other meds. The shit is crazy here.

Yes I didn't consider that. In Australia so it's not an issue here.

Yes I know more than a few bi.polar people who struggle with missing the high of mania. I can see that possibly happening
