    A Massachusetts woman charged with killing her 9-year-old daughter and her unborn son nearly a decade ago has been found not guilty by reason of insanity.

    The Patriot Ledger reports that the ruling in 47-year-old Xue Fang Chi's case came Thursday after a two-day bench trial. She was committed to a state psychiatric hospital.

    Prosecutors say multiple mental health professionals found the Quincy woman unfit for trial and determined she couldn't be held criminally responsible.

    She was indicted for murder in the death of her daughter and for manslaughter in the death of her unborn son in April 2009. She was eight months pregnant.
