Fargo sushi chef accused of stabbing found not guilty

FARGO, N.D. (AP) -- A sushi chef in Fargo accused of stabbing a fellow chef with a foot-long knife has been found not guilty of aggravated assault but sent to the State Hospital in Jamestown for mental health treatment.

Judge Douglas Herman found Lin Zhong not guilty during a bench trial on Monday. Herman ruled that the 31-year-old chef from Flushing, New York, lacked criminal responsibility for his actions.

Authorities say Zhong stabbed another chef in the hip during a fight at Osaka Sushi and Hibachi in late March.

Prosecutor Leah Viste said in court that an evaluation of Zhong determined that he had ''a level of psychosis'' that impaired his ability to comprehend his conduct.

Zhong will have a hearing in 90 days to review his mental health treatment.
