Updated 3 years ago

A Bangor woman accused of killing her boyfriend pleaded not guilty Tuesday.Police say 53-year-old Gail Judd stabbed 47-year-old Michael Drouin in the chest in February.Judd appeared in a Bangor courtroom Tuesday afternoon.A court affidavit says police were responding to a reported theft at an apartment on Court Street when Drouin’s body was discovered inside Judd’s apartment.The report indicated Judd told police Drouin was forcing himself on her and she grabbed the knife for protection.In those documents, she admitted to cutting him and leaving, but told police she didn’t think he was dead.At her last court appearance, Judd was ordered to undergo a psychiatric evaluation to determine if she could stand trial.Tuesday, the defense requested a right to enter a further plea of not criminally responsible by reason of insanity, pending the outcome of the evaluation.”In the meantime, we’ve got information that needs to be reviewed not only concerning the investigation but also concerning matters relating to Judd’s psychological condition, situation,” said Defense Attorney Jeff Silverstein.”The evaluation is impounded which means the state really can’t have access to it until the defense determines to use a plea involving her state of mind so I can’t really speak for the evaluator at all,” said Assistant Attorney General Andrew Benson.Judd continues to be held without bail.
