Woman Who Stoned Children to Death Will Remain in Mental Facility
From the Tyler Paper, Judge Kent orders Deanna Laney to spend another year in the state hospital. Last year, the court discovered that she was permitted to leave the hospital on passes to go eat and shop with family. This was ordered to stop. The question I pose: should defendants found not guilty by reason of insanity be allowed passes and furloughs? What about those defendants that are in the hospital found incompetent to stand trial?
