The defendant known as Jane Doe is set to appear in Anoka County District Court Tuesday for a hearing to commit her to the Minnesota Security Hospital in St. Peter.
Police identified her as Tammy Anquinette Thomas of Illinois after arresting her last summer in a vacant home along East River Road in Fridley. Prosecutors charged her with a variety of offenses, from trespassing to receiving stolen property and engaging in identity theft.
Her refusal to cooperate with booking procedures—such as giving her name or allowing a booking photograph to be taken—led to a record stay in an Anoka County Jail holding cell.
Her refusal to cooperate with psychological evaluation led to an earlier stint at the St. Peter hospital.
Commitment would send her back to St. Peter indefinitely, pending a ruling that she is competent to stand trial.
