Tang trial restarts in December

Anna L. Tang, the former Wellesley student who stabbed Wolfe B. Styke ’10 in October 2007, is set to go to trial in December.

At a status conference last Friday, the trial was confirmed for December 1–3.

The Commonwealth asked the judge last Friday to reconsider permitting Tang to relocate from Framingham, Mass., to Brighton, Mass., a move she has already made. The judge denied the motion. The Commonwealth made the request on behalf of Styke, said spokeswoman Jessica Venezia Pastore.

Tang is charged with assault with intent to murder, assault to cause bodily harm, and home invasion. She was mentally unwell at the time of the event, according to courtroom statements, and is under house arrest. She may leave her Brighton home for limited purposes, including attending a weekly class at Boston University.
