Tang Trial Scheduled for October

Anna L. Tang, the former Wellesley student accused of stabbing Wolfe B. Styke ’10, is tentatively scheduled to face a jury trial on October 13, 2009. In October of 2007, Tang allegedly stabbed Styke -- her ex-boyfriend -- seven times in his neck and torso as he slept.

According to the original police reports, Style awoke in his Next House room while being stabbed and fought off Tang before calling the police. When officers arrived, Tang was reportedly waiting in the hallway outside Styke’s room and covered in blood. Tang faces charges of home invasion, armed assault with intent to murder, and assault and battery with a dangerous weapon causing serious bodily injury.

Following her arrest, Tang was imprisoned for two-and-a-half months at the MCI-Framingham correctional facility before being released on $10,000 bail. She is currently under house arrest and monitored by GPS.
