A Cook County judge ruled Monday the woman accused of stalking Cubs President Theo Epstein will be allowed to receive mental health treatment in Boston.

Kathleen Kearney's attorneys had requested she be able to return to Massachusetts for treatment, but prosecutors wanted her to stay in Illinois and wear an electronic tracking device, according to the Chicago Tribune.

Kearney was arrested last Monday and charged Tuesday with two counts of felony stalking after Chicago police said they found her two blocks from Epstein's home.

Kearney was released from the Cook County Jail Friday after her brother-in-law posted a $7,500 cash bond, the Tribune reported. Kearney's father and sister have been appointed temporary guardians, according to the Tribune.

If Kearney is released from the hospital in Massachusetts, she will be required to stay with her sister and brother-in-law, and check in regularly with Cook County officials.
