WASHINGTON (AP) — Doctors say a woman who was arrested in July and accused of splattering green paint at the Washington National Cathedral is incompetent to stand trial.

The Washington Post reports Jiamei Tian, 58, was found incompetent after an examination by doctors at Washington’s St. Elizabeths Hospital. The finding is preliminary, and doctors recommended Tian be given a full competency examination.

A hearing in Tian’s case was held Wednesday in D.C. Superior Court, but she was not present.

Tian was charged with defacing the Washington National Cathedral with green paint and suspected of similar vandalism at the Lincoln Memorial and other sites. Another hearing in the case was scheduled for Oct. 31.
