Psychiatric Exam Ruled Public Document

Posted December 16, 2006

— An Orange County judge has denied a motion to seal the mental health evaluation of a Chapel Hill teenager accused of holding a teacher and a fellow student hostage at East Chapel Hill High School.

Earlier this week, the judge ruled William Foster is mentally competent to stand trial.

Foster underwent a mental evaluation in Virginia.

The evaluation shows the teen suffered from a mood and psychotic disorder.

He also had a history of substance abuse.
