BENNINGTON, Vt. (AP) - A woman who shot and killed her boss at the former Eveready Battery factory in Bennington, Vermont, in 1991 is being allowed to move to another psychiatric facility.

The Bennington Banner reports (http://bit.ly/Jea059) a judge approved the move Sept. 29 allowing 52-year-old Elizabeth Teague to be moved from the Brattleboro Retreat to the Middlesex Therapeutic Community Residence.

The Vermont Department of Mental Health wanted to move Teague to free up acute care beds. A state’s attorney said Teague is still dangerous and Middlesex isn’t as secure.

Teague was diagnosed as a paranoid schizophrenic after she killed the plant manager, wounded two co-workers and tried to set the factory on fire. She was taken into custody in New Hampshire near the Canadian border.

She was found incompetent to stand trial.
