HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - A 42-year-old Connecticut woman charged with stabbing and severely injuring a police officer during an eviction dispute has been acquitted by reason of mental disease or defect of charges including attempted murder. Judge David Gold ruled Wednesday that Chevoughn Augustin will be committed to the custody of the Connecticut Psychiatric Security Review Board after a hearing which will be scheduled this summer. Gold found that Augustin suffered from a history of schizophrenia and other mental health problems when she stabbed Hartford Police Officer Jill Kidik in May 2018 during an eviction call at a Hartford apartment.
