trial 2004

Deanna Laney was a devout Christian living alone with her three sons in Chapel Hill, Texas, when she began experiencing violent delusions and bouts of psychosis. The former choir singer and band player began withdrawing from her circle of friends and family, isolating herself in her house with her children. Laney had a history of depression and anxiety that went back to her childhood years, but nobody considered her a serious threat to herself or her children.

That changed on May 9th, 2003, when a police unit picked up a 911 call. A woman was sobbing over the line that she had killed her three children and that God had promised her it was the right thing to do. Though barely coherant, Laney told the shocked police officers that she had heard God’s voice telling her to murder Joshua (8) and Jason (6) with a rock. She also confessed to clubbing her infant son in his crib.

When police arrived at the house they discovered the bodies of two young children on the lawn; both boys were dead from gaping head wounds, and the murder weapon - a large rock - lay nearby, splattered with blood. Laney was found sitting on the sofa, covered in the blood of her sons, muttering gibberish. Miraculously, her infant son survived the assault and medical staff were able to bring him back from the brink of death.

Laney was immediately detained and charged with murder. During her trial in May 2004, five psychologists testified that Laney was mentally disturbed at the time of the murders and two stated she met the criteria for legal insanity. Laney was promptly declared not guilty by reason of insanity and reccommended to observation in an institution; she was released in 2012.

a day, a serial killer + november, 6


Marc Dutroux (born 6 November 1956 in Brussels) is a Belgian serial killer and child molester, convicted of having kidnapped, tortured and sexually abused six girls during 1995 and 1996, ranging in age from 8 to 19, four of whom he murdered. He was also convicted of having killed a suspected former accomplice, Bernard Weinstein, later proved insane.

He was arrested in 1996 and has been in prison since then. His widely publicised trial took place in 2004. A number of shortcomings in the Dutroux investigation caused widespread discontent in Belgium with the country’s criminal justice system, and the ensuing scandal was one of the reasons for the reorganisation of Belgium’s law enforcement agencies.
