CHICAGO — A judge has ordered a psychiatric evaluation for a woman with a history of trying to sneak onto planes after she was arrested twice in nine days at Chicago's two international airports.

Cook County Judge William Raines on Thursday also ordered 63-year-old Marilyn Hartman to stay away from airports.

Police say Hartman was arrested Sunday at Midway International Airport and charged with misdemeanor criminal trespassing after she loitered near a checkpoint. She pleaded guilty to the same charge after being arrested April 24 for lingering in a restricted area near a ticketing counter inside O'Hare airport's international terminal. Court records show she was sentenced to a year of court supervision.

Hartman is being held on $7,500 bond.

Hartman has tried several times in recent years to board flights without tickets.
