A Massachusetts woman accused of fatally stabbing her daughter and then stabbing herself in her pregnant stomach has been found incompetent to face charges.

The arraignment of Fang Chi-Xue was postponed Tuesday by a judge in Quincy District Court.

The judge says Chi-Xue will be sent back to Worcester State Hospital, where she has been since last month. Her status will be reviewed again on July 1.

Authorities say that on April 16 Chi-Xue fatally stabbed her 9-year-old daughter and tried to strangle her 14-year-old daughter. She is then accused of killing her fetus by stabbing herself in the abdomen. She was 71/2 months pregnant.

Police said the surviving daughter told them her mother believed her husband was going to leave her.



Previous Story:

A pregnant Massachusetts woman is suspected of killing her 9-year-old daughter and stabbing herself in the abdomen, resulting in the death of her fetus.

The Norfolk District Attorney's office said Friday that 38-year-old Fang Chi Xue will undergo a mental health evaluation.

The woman is suspected of killing the 9-year-old, stabbing herself and trying to strangle her 14-year-old daughter at their Quincy home.

She is charged with one count of first-degree murder and one
count of assault with intent to murder.

Prosecutors say a medical examiner must determine whether the
fetus was viable outside the womb before they can consider a second
murder charge.

    This country needs to wake up and hold people accountable for thier actions. I really believe that just about anyone can commit a crime and plead insanity and get away with it. We are going downhill fast. God will get this woman for what she did to her children.

    What do you mean she will undergo a mental health evaluation. Look what she did, she's crazy.

    I agree with Alison, We will never know the life that these children had to endure. I think they should give her the electric chair for her crimes.. sick people in this world!

    My heart is breaking as I think of what these poor children went through. They are where their mother can no longer hurt them. God bless you precious angels!
