Anna Tang still in limbo

At 2 p.m. today in Middlesex Superior Court, the defense and prosecution continued to spar over Anna L. Tang, the former Wellesley college student who stabbed MIT student Wolfe B. Styke ’10 in October of 2007. Tang was found not guilty by reason of mental illness in December of last year.

At issue was whether Tang should be committed to a mental institution, or could be allowed to resume her life. Tang is currently confined to her home, with exceptions for church, doctor’s appointments, and exercise.

The judge indicated he had hoped to rule today, but had not had time to review the lengthy treatment plan filed.

The next court date is tentatively set for February 9, but that date is expected to move because of scheduling constraints.
