The decision doesn't surprise me, but the whole thing makes me sad.
She's a relative of someone that I know a little bit. The whole thing is extremely sad, but I am not sure that I could have found her not-guilty by reason of insanity even though I am sure she is very mentally ill. Normally, I would by in favor of getting someone help, but I just don't think I could in this case.
The really sad part is that her little boy that survived is old enough to remember all of this. And he apparently knew what was going on. That kid is going to have a rough go of it.
I just keep thinking of that poor boy who lost his life and what his last moments were like.
Just a no win situation for all involved. Husband and son have monster left for a wife/mother.
No matter what the verdict was...this would never ever have had a happy ending! This whole ordeal is surreal and incredibly sad! Horrible...
As someone who was an alternate on a jury for a murder trial, I appreciate the resolve jurors have to weigh the evidence and come to their decisions. It may inconvenience people to serve on juries, but it is necessary.
Wow... living in Indiana now, I didn't hear all about this... what a terrible chain of events... she got what she deserves, but wow... what a terrible story.
I am not for rehabbing murderers. Regardless if they are crazy. Actually it would not be rehabbing. She appears to have been crazy her whole life. She would just get habilitated.
