Psych evaluation due for woman accused of punching baby in mall

Guam - What happens next in the case against Yu Hua Han will be determined by findings from her psychological evaluation.

Han is believed to be the woman caught on mall surveillance footage punching 10-month-old Alexya Esser in the face before running away.

Han pleaded not guilty by reason of mental illness to charges of aggravated assault and child abuse.

This isn't the first time Han has taken an insanity plea. Back in 2009, she was accused of stabbing a baby girl and the baby's father outside Lonestar Steakhouse. According to the victim's family, she was deemed unfit to stand trial due to paranoid schizophrenia. It's believed this case was expunged.

Han appeared in court this morning for the most recent case, but the court didn't act on anything as they are waiting the psych eval which was ordered earlier this month.

Han's next court appearance is scheduled for March 12.
