Claire Ogilvie, 36, remains behind bars following the alleged attack on Nancy Tramontin on February 24th.
Her case has been back and forth in front of a Charlottesville judge since she was arrested back in February.
Ogilvie appeared in Charlottesville General District Court on Thursday via video conference. Her attorney and the special prosecutor from Fluvanna County, Jeff Haislip, agreed that Ogilvie should have a physiological evaluation
She is charged with armed burglary, abduction and malicious wounding for the alleged assault of Nancy Tramontin, wife of Delegate David Toscano.
Back in February, Tramontin said she was attacked in her home by Ogilvie while Toscano was in Richmond for the General Assembly. She also says she became friends with Ogilvie back in 2010, but soon distanced herself from Ogilvie because of her “unsettling interest” into the Toscano family.
Ogilvie’s attorney, Adam Rhea, says they want to make sure they have all of the evidence before moving forward with the case.
“I think very soon we will be able to come to some determination of what the proper way to proceed is in the case,” says Rhea. “I think until we have good complete information it's not wise for either of us on either side of the case to just start doing hearings and things like that where we don't have all of the cards yet.”
Ogilvie is expected back in front of a judge on July 17th.
