Trial Begins for Mother Charged with Murder

A 39-year-old East Texas woman went on trial in Tyler Monday in the stoning deaths of two of her sons and the injuring of a third. Deanna Laney is pleading innocent by reason of insanity, but prosecutors contend she knew right from wrong.

Deanna Laney's attorney says the mother thought she was heeding God's voice when she stoned her three sons. If convicted, she could get a life sentence.

Much more details will be available on the East Texas News at 5,6 and 10.
