I have known Sandy and her mother for the last 16 years through the church. From the outside looking in, Sandy was a devoted daughter. Neither of these ladies would hurt a flea much less each other. I have to believe the mother and daughter must have hit the tipping point this past Sunday evening in their roles. I see a very elderly woman not wanting to go to a nursing home and perhaps begging her aging spinster daughter not to let this happen. We don't know the "behind the door" relationship between these two. There was a dual dependency for sure. I do believe Sandy is not a threat to society. She could be a threat to herself, however. This is so very sad. I hope the court shows mercy on this poor woman who has cared for her mother pretty much all her life - and now facing her last years with no children of her own to care for her. Surely prison is not the answer here.

I, also believe Sandy would never hurt her mother. She deserves the best lawyer available and I pray she secures the right person to fight for her. God Bless you, Sandy.
