You know what?

Good. That's exactly what happened. She was mentally unable to be guilty of her crime. Everytime she gets into a "right" state of mind she remembers what she did and back down that mental rabbit hole she goes.

I'm so glad. That's what needed to happen. Still makes me terribly sad to think about though.

Period.

No matter what her mental state, she killed her children.

What happens to her now?
She will be going to a mental institution.

She was found not guilty by reason of insanity- no one is saying that she didn't murder her babies, just that she wasn't in a right mind when she did.

As the pp said, she goes to a mental institution.

I just wish there was a way to try Rusty

This was a horrible tragedy all the way around, and sending her to prison when she was PSYCHOTIC would not have brought those babies back. Too bad Rusty walked away scot free. He was the one person in a position to have actually prevented this.

Ditto on that but not without mixed feelings. His role in the whole mess gets overlooked easily. He definately shares much of the responsibility since he knew his wife was sick and told to lay off the baby making. I don't think he did enough to keep them all safe.

By the- what do you all think about trying her again for the two murders they did not charge her with?
