Luminita Solcan is 41 and has been for six years in the French medical facility, where she was committed by a court ruling. The woman was attacked, with a knife, by her roommate and stabbed 17 times, around 10 pm. According to Europe 1, Luminita Solcan is in stable condition now, but the doctors were reluctant to make a definitive forecast, merely stating they were “reserved, depending on her future evolution.”

On August 16, 2005, in Taizé, before dozens of faithful, father Roger was stabbed by Luminita Solcan, from Iasi, 35 at the time. The witnesses managed to immobilize her right away and turn her over to the police.
The Romanian faced trial in December 2007. As two of the three psychiatric tests she underwent proved Solcan had not been in possession of her faculties when committing the deed, the French court decided against deferring her to justice and had her committed to a mental institution.
