A hearing is set for an Oklahoma physician found not guilty by reason of insanity in the stabbing death of his 9-year-old son following a psychologist's recommendation that he be conditionally released from a mental health facility.

The hearing set for Tuesday before Oklahoma County District Judge Donald Deason is for Dr. Stephen Wolf. Deason has the final say in whether Wolf is released or will remain at the Oklahoma Forensic Center.

Wolf is not expected to appear.

The 52-year-old Wolf was admitted June 8 after being found not guilty by reason of insanity of first-degree murder and assault in the Nov. 16, 2009, stabbing of his son, Tommy. His wife, Mary Wolf, was cut in the attack.

His conditional release was recommended by the center's director of forensic psychology.
