Insanity defense to be asserted in Bristol murder case

The Roanoke Times reports here that defense lawyers from the Capital Defender Office for Western Virginia plan a defense of insanity in the case of the Bristol, Virginia woman who drowned her child in the bathtub.

The Bristol paper is in litigation with the City regarding the woman's 911 call regarding the crime.

This article comes shortly on the heels of news of the verdict in Texas on the retrial of Andrea Yates, on which a Houston columnist has some observations here.
