Woman accused of throwing baby out window acquitted after insanity plea
EVERETT, Wash. (AP) — A woman accused of throwing her 1-year-old nephew out a second-story window has been acquitted due to mental illness. The Daily Herald reports that Beteha Kebede on Wednesday pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity to second-degree child assault. A state psychologist testified that Kebede, who has schizophrenia, was too mentally ill to understand what she was doing at the time of the incident.
