A judge ruled Tuesday that a Prince George’s County, Md., woman accused in a stabbing this month is competent enough to stand trial.

Antoinette Starks, 55, is charged with attempted murder for allegedly stabbing a woman near a Target store in Lanham on Oct. 11.

She's being held without bond until her next court date on Nov. 8.

Starks spent several years in a state mental hospital after stabbing two people at a Nordstrom department store in 2005. In that case, she was found not guilty by reason of insanity.

She was released in August.
