Woman sent to mental hospital after stabbing Vero priest

Posted by Rachel Leigh - email

VERO BEACH, FL (WFLX) - A woman, accused of stabbing a Vero Beach priest during confession, is found not guilty by reason of insanity.

A judge handed down that ruling Tuesday to 57-year-old Josephine Gatchell.

In April, Gatchell was arrested for stabbing Father Michael Massaro. She told investigators he was the devil.

Two mental health experts looked at Gatchell who will now be taken to a state mental hospital for treatment.
