LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) – A woman accused of killing two men at a Lincoln apartment will be evaluated to see if she is mentally fit to stand trial.

According to court documents filed Friday, a Lancaster County judge ordered a mental competency evaluation of 27-year-old Taylor Bradley.

Bradley, who police say ran over and killed two maintenance workers with her car at The Lodge apartment complex, is set to be evaluated on Monday.

She has been charged with two counts of first-degree murder, one count of attempted first-degree murder and three counts of using a weapon to commit a felony.

During a Wednesday court hearing, Bradley became agitated and repeatedly denied the charges as the judge read them.

Her bond has been set at $2 million.

On Thursday, Assistant Police Chief Brian Jackson said an investigation is ongoing to “more clearly understand the circumstances surrounding this event.”
