Central Penitentiary for Women director Angkhanueng Lebnark said Jitrada Tantiwanichayasuk, 36, had not been kept in solitary confinement at the institute. There was a fear her mental condition could worsen while her trial for attempted murder of three schoolgirls was continuing.
Public prosecutor Phiphat Jantharamekha said Southern Bangkok Criminal Court had accepted Jitrada was not yet able to testify on her behalf as suggested by Galya Rajanagarindra Institute.
He said she should be incarcerated at the Central Penitentiary for Women, as the institute could not afford to continue her treatment because of funding problems.
The Court set the next hearing in her case for April 21.
