A jury in the retrial of Andrea Yates today found her not guilty by reason of insanity:
The jury had spent 11 hours Monday and Tuesday trying to determine if Yates was legally insane. Wednesday morning, they reviewed the state’s definition of insanity and then asked to see a family photo and candid pictures of the five smiling youngsters. After about an hour of deliberations, they said they had reached a verdict.
So they looked at the picture, looked at the definition, and decided she was out of her mind? There does have to be something wrong — either insanity or the presence of Satan himself — in order for someone to kill her five children.
