The trial for a Tulsa woman accused of sparking a false statewide Amber Alert back in October was supposed to begin Thursday.

Tulsa County District Court Judge David Youll rejected Miller's guilty plea Wednesday, after it became clear she didn't understand her responsibility in the alleged crime. In another twist, the judge has now ordered a competence hearing set for February 16th before the trial can begin.

The court will determine whether she understands the charges against her.

Prosecutors have recommended 30-days in jail and one year probation, plus pay the city $4,500 for the cost of the Amber Alert.
