Something about this whole case is not right.

I still find it amazing that a teenage girl can outsmart an entire sheriff's office. Their claim is that she left no evidence that tied her to the crime??

NEW BOSTON, Texas—Lawyers for a teen girl accused of murdering a mother and her two young children in 2011 have given notice to the state that they intend to plead insanity.
Attorney Tonda Curry of Longview, Texas, signed the document Sept. 27 on behalf of Rachael Nicole Pittman.
Pittman, 18, is charged in the stabbing deaths of Amanda Doss, 34, and her children, Guinevere Doss, 11, and Texas Johnson, 8. The family were killed in the predawn hours of May 11, 2011, at their home on Farm to Market Road 991, a few miles west of Texarkana, Texas.
If a jury convicts Pittman but accepts her insanity defense, the teen could be acquitted.
Prosecutors likely will argue that Pittman set the bodies of the slain on fire to cover her crime, an act that might lead a jury to think Pittman knew what she allegedly did was wrong.
Doss’ mother, Wanda Prewett, received a disturbing call from Guinevere early on the morning of the family’s deaths, search warrant documents state. Prewett and her husband, Glenn, found their daughter’s home ablaze after rushing the short distance from their home to hers.
The case appeared to puzzle investigators, and a reward for information leading to an arrest grew to more than $140,000 before Pittman’s mother contacted Bowie County Sheriff’s Office with information in mid-August 2011.
Since then, Pittman, who was 16 at the time of the deaths, has been certified to stand trial as an adult. Defendants younger than 17 are considered juveniles under Texas law unless certified as adults, based on the seriousness of the offense or a lengthy history of criminal conduct.
Indictments handed down earlier this year accuse Pittman of capital murder, multiple persons, in the deaths of Doss and Guinevere and first-degree murder in Texas’ death.
Pittman pleaded not guilty.
Thursday’s hearing was set earlier this week in response to a motion from prosecutors asking the court to compel the defense to comply with an order inked Aug. 29.
At the August hearing, 202nd District Judge Leon F. Pesek Jr. gave the defense an Oct. 2 deadline to provide the state with reports from experts, specifically a psychiatrist and psychologist.
The state complained at Thursday’s hearing that the defense had provided only sketchy, incomplete, preliminary reports detailing the experts’ opinions of Pittman’s mental state.
First Assistant District Attorney Michael Shepherd told Pesek that receiving the defense’s expert reports has become more urgent since notice of Pittman’s intention to use the insanity defense.
DA Jerry Rochelle echoed Shepherd and expressed concern that the state will not have adequate time to prepare rebuttals to Pittman’s experts before the trial in January.
Curry argued that the state was trying to “stop us from continuing our examination.”
“There’s no reason their doctor can’t evaluate our client,” Curry said.“There is no reason he can’t start. There is no reason he couldn’t have already started once we gave our insanity notice.”
Pesek noted that the order he penned directed the defense to provide expert reports, including a description of the procedures used by the experts as well as their diagnoses. Pesek gave the defense a new deadline of Oct. 22 to provide more detailed expert reports.
Pittman’s trial for capital murder is scheduled for Jan. 14 in Rusk County. The case was moved because of pretrial publicity.
A trial has not been scheduled on the first-degree murder charge in Texas’ death.
If convicted of capital murder, Pittman faces life in prison with parole possible after 40 years.
Texas law provides for a sentence of death or life without parole for capital murder, but Pittman faces a lesser sentence because of her age at the time of the alleged crimes.
First-degree murder is punishable by five to 99 years or life in a Texas prison.
Pittman remains in the Bowie County jail. Bail is $3 million.
