Ex-Wellesley College student found not guilty by reason of insanity

Anna Tang, the former Wellesley College student who stabbed her ex-boyfriend at MIT in 2007, has been acquitted by a judge on grounds that she was legally insane at the time of the incident.

Tang admitted to the stabbing but claimed she was insane at the time due to a bipolar disorder and because she suffers from depression. She was being tried for assault with attempt to murder as well as home invasion.

More from the Wellesley Townsman, which had a reporter at the trial.
