An Apex woman accused of murdering her husband with a hammer was found incompetent to stand trial Friday.

A judge ruled Jolene Hardy, 55, is not able to assist with her defense. She will be sent for psychiatric treatment and could be put on trial if she's found competent in the future.

Detectives say Hardy murdered her 60-year-old husband Gerald in July, 2009.
