The woman accused of stabbing a Hartford police officer multiple times in May 2018 was found not guilty by a judge Wednesday due to mental disease or defect.
Chevoughn Augustin had been charged with attempted murder, first-degree assault, and assault on a police officer in connection with the attack that nearly took the life of Officer Jill Kidik.
“I don’t remember being stabbed in the throat but I knew I was dying,” Kidik said during her testimony.
Her fellow officers rushed her to the hospital and doctors saved Kidik's life.
Augustin was ordered transferred to Whiting Forensic Institute for a mental evaluation after the verdict Wednesday.
