Pedreros to be Hospitalized

Posted By on Tue, Dec 18, 2012 at 3:08 PM

Claudia Pedreros will be sent to a state mental hospital next month, her attorney said Tuesday, after being found not guilty by reason of insanity on Monday in the death of her daughter. Pedreros was accused of drowning the 2½ -year-old girl in the Trinity River in 2011. (See “Robert's Vow,” in the North Coast Journal in June 2011.)

Her trial had both a guilt phase and a sanity phase, and both concluded Monday, said attorney Russ Clanton. A jury found her guilty of involuntary manslaughter and child abuse then concluded she was insane at the time of those crimes. Times-Standard coverage of the verdict is here.
