"The court has read out documents on the suspect’s mental health, which showed she was diagnosed with schizotypal personality disorder in June 2015," the source in a Moscow court said.
People who suffer from schizotypal personality disorder (STPD) tend to have severe anxiety, paranoia and often unconventional beliefs which resemble those seen in schizophrenic patients, though no definite schizophrenic anomalies occur.
Karaulova was first detained on the Turkish-Syrian border together with a dozen of other would-be jihadists and deported to Moscow in June 2015. Her father said she had fallen in love with an Daesh recruiter.
She changed her name to Alexandra Ivanova months after returning home but was accused of preparing another trip to Syria. She is being held in custody. Her detention was reportedly extended until December 13.
