Montgomery County prosecutors tried to prevent a state psychiatric hospital from releasing a schizophrenic woman, stating she remained a "danger to others and herself because of her mental illness," months before she was charged with stabbing a person Tuesday outside a Target store in Lanham.
The "failure" of Ms. Starks has left hospital staff reeling, Mr. Fitch said.
Mr. Fitch also said he could not comment on whether Ms. Starks exhibited any behavior that would have warranted re-hospitalization before her arrest.
