Captain America actress ‘not competent to stand trial for murdering mom

CAPTAIN America actress Mollie Fitzgerald has been found incompetent to stand trial for the murder of her mother, her attorney says.

The 38-year-old stands accused after 68-year-old Patricia “Tee” Fitzgerald, was found dead inside a home on December 20, 2019.

According to TMZ, the former actress had been due to appear in court in late September where she would face charges of second degree murder.

But, speaking to the outlet, attorney Jason Billam, who represents her, confirmed that three mental health doctors had stated a case that she was unfit to be tried and that the court had been satisfied with their findings.

He claims the majority had concluded that Mollie didn’t have the ability to assist her attorney in providing a defence as she had remained “confused” about the judicial procedure.

She has since been returned to a state mental hospital where she will continue treatment, the attorney added.

The news come roughly 21 months after the 38-year-old’s arrest was made public on January 1, 2020.

A day later the Sun obtained exclusive audio from a police dispatcher where she allegedly admitted her guilt via a chilling 911 call made on the night of her mother’s death.

In the audio, an operator reported an “armed disturbance.”

The operator continued: “Matter with a knife. Perp is now saying she took the knife and killed her mother with it.”

According to the Olathe Police Department offense report, the incident was reported at 11:58am before authorities found Patricia, 68, dead in the home.

A knife was listed in the report as the weapon in the fatal stabbing.

Police at the time had confirmed that: “A 38-year-old white female, known to the victim, was contacted on scene and transported to a local hospital with minor injuries.” 

She was charges later that night and has been held in custody ever since with a $500,000 bond.

‘WE WERE SHOCKED’

Meanwhile, Patricia’s brother Gary Hunziker previously told the Kansas City Star: “We were shocked,” after reports emerged of his sisters passing.

“It doesn’t matter the circumstances – the loss of a sister is what it’s all about,” he said.

The Montgomery, Texas resident was in the process of moving back to Kansas City, according to her brother.

Mollie had previously made her way in the film industry having played a “Stark Girl” in the 2011 film Captain America: The First Avenger.

She also had roles in 2014’s The Lawful Truth and 2018’s Trouble Is My Business.
