An East Texas woman who stoned two of her children to death and severely injured a third child made an appearance in the Smith County Courthouse today.
Deanna Laney of New Chapel Hill was acquitted of capital murder by reason of insanity in 2004. Laney was ordered to inpatient treatment at Kerrville State Hospital. In court, Laney testified that it was God who told her to kill her children.
Today, Laney appeared in court for a status hearing. Laney's defense attorney requested that the hearing be closed to the public. The judge granted that request, and no one, including media, was allowed in the courtroom. Copyright 2014 KLTV. All rights reserved.
