SPRINGDALE, Md. (WUSA9) -- A woman accused of stabbing a woman in the parking lot of the Springdale, Md. Target in October 2011 has pleaded guilty to attempted first degree murder, according to Prince George's County State's Attorney Angela Alsobrooks.

As part of her plea agreement, Antoinette Starks was "found not criminally responsible for her actions and has been remanded to the custody of the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene indefinitely."

Starks randomly stabbed the other woman as she left the target on October 11, 2011 and then left the scene. Starks was later found walking down the road with multiple knives with her.

Starks was arrested and indicted on November 1, 2011. Alsobrooks says since that time she has undergone mental health evaulations to determine if she was competent to stand trial. In March 2012, she was committed to DHMH and in August 2012 she was declared incompetent to stand trial.

Starks was later found competent to stand trial in March 2013. Alsobrooks says Starks entered a plea of not criminally responsible for attempted first degree murder and first degree assault charges. She remained with DHMH until May 31, 2103, when she was found competent to stand trial but not criminally responsible by DHMH.
