WASHINGTON (AP) — A woman charged with defacing the Washington National Cathedral and suspected of committing similar vandalism at other sites including the Lincoln Memorial is expected back in court for a status hearing.
Jiamei Tian is accused of splashing green paint in two different chapels of the cathedral. She is expected back in D.C. Superior Court in Washington on Thursday.
After her arrest at the cathedral in late July, a judge ordered Tian released to a halfway house. The judge ordered she wear an ankle monitoring bracelet and barred her from leaving the halfway house or having visitors.
Police and prosecutors also believe Tian is connected to recent vandalism at the Lincoln Memorial, a church and two different statues in the city. Green or white paint was found at each location.
