  • Andrea Yates Granted New Trial

    Being reported by KRIV in Texas. It's breaking news on Fox News. No link yet. I will post it as soon as one is available. According to the report, there is a question about some of the forensic testimony.

    Yates was the mother who drowned her 5 children in the bathtub at her home in June of 2001.

    Interviewing Yates' appeals attorney right now. He's saying that one of the experts that tesitified at her trial claimed to be a consultant on an episode of Law & Order where a mother drowned her children and that's where Yates got the idea to drown her children. It has come out that there was never any such episode of Law & Order. Her attorney is hoping that a new trial will allow her to be declared insane and put in a hospital and not a prison.

      This is such a sad story. I'm not sure where I personally think she belongs. Wouldnt one have to be sick to do that to your kids? I'm torn. What a horrible crime.

        Don't really care what happens to Andrea, but her husband sure as hell ought to be incarcerated too.

          As a mother, I think that the woman had to be completely insane to harm her own children. Over time and more of the story about her life has come out in the news, I feel more and more sorry for her. She had been diagnosed by several doctors as having emotional issues and yet her husband had her home-schooling all those children and living in conditions that would cause anyone a lot of stress. I can't believe that the husband was never charged with anything. He's the only one in that household who had the capacity to make decisions and he obviously acted in very poor judgement.

            Does it matter?

            Kill her and you save money and time.

                    Her husband divorced her shortly after she went to prison but claims that he is still standing by her.

                      I'm sure he's standing right by her side.
