Report: Chism 'foaming at the mouth' after attack on clinician

Posted: Updated:
SALEM, Mass. (AP) - Court documents say a Massachusetts teenager charged with killing his math teacher appeared to be "psychotic" after he allegedly attacked a female clinician at a Department of Youth Services detention center in Boston earlier this month.
According to the petition to have Philip Chism committed to Worcester Recovery Center and Hospital for 30 days of evaluation and treatment, the 15-year-old was "out of touch with reality" and "yelling, screaming incoherently (and) foaming at the mouth while being restrained by staff."
The details were released Tuesday by a Superior Court judge in response to a motion by The Salem News.
Chism pleaded not guilty to robbing, raping and killing 24-year-old Danvers High School teacher Colleen Ritzer after following her into a restroom last October. He was 14 at the time.
