Barking Woman Declared Unfit for Trial

Posted May 18 2010 9:14am

A 43-year old Suffolk, Virginia woman has been declared unfit for trial following a bizarre assault .  Lillian Beasley was charged following an incident in March when Beasly had apparently gotten into a physical confrontation with the woman she had attacked.  According to the police report, Beasley had been on the property earlier and told to leave.  After returning she became verbally abusive and, when the victim put up her hands defensively, Beasley bit one of her fingers and almost tore it off her hand.  Police found Beasley throwing herself into the mud and barking in the victim's front yard and charged her with malicious wounding and trespassing. 

At her appearance in General District Court, the forensic psychiatrist testified that Beasley was unable to assist in mounting a defense.  The case will be re-evaluated in November.
