ATTLEBORO, Mass. (AP) - A dangerousness hearing for a Massachusetts woman accused of chasing her ex-husband with an ax and putting their 11-year-old son in a chokehold has been postponed.

A judge on Monday delayed proceedings until Thursday because Julie Rabinowitz doesn’t have a lawyer yet.

Police say 46-year-old Rabinowitz, of North Attleborough, hid in Mark Schenkman’s minivan last week.

Police say she dressed in camouflage and chased Schenkman into his dental office while swinging an ax. They said he got the weapon away from her before authorities arrived.

Schenkman’s lawyer said the alleged attack was a “harrowing” experience for Schenkman and his son, who police say Rabinowitz had restrained during the attack.

If Rabinowitz is deemed dangerous, she could be held for up to 120 days without bail. She has pleaded not guilty.
