Her aunt says Antoinette Pelzer has long suffered from mental illness. Authorities say Pelzer stabbed two Canadian women, ages 80 and 47, on Monday morning as they were walking in an area where
most of Atlantic City’s casinos have their entrance ways and parking garages.

Witnesses tell police that Pelzer tried to steal a purse from one of the women and stabbed them.

Superior Court Judge Michael Donio had difficulty getting the defendant to focus and respond to his questions.

The judge has set her bail on murder and weapons charges at $1.5 million.
