Man found not guilty by reason of insanity in wife’s slaying

DAKOTA CITY, Neb. (AP) _ A man accused of fatally shooting his wife outside a northeast Nebraska police station has been found not guilty by reason of insanity.

Judge Paul Vaughan issued the verdict Wednesday on 41-year-old Bei Sheng Chen. Vaughan ordered that Chen be sent to the state psychiatric hospital in Lincoln and treated there until he’s no longer a danger to himself and others.

Authorities say Chen shot 33-year-old Mei Huang on Sept. 6 in the parking lot of the South Sioux City police station. She died hours later at a Sioux City, Iowa, hospital.
