Dena Schlosser, Plano mom who cut off babby's arms, moving to outpatient care
By WENDY HUNDLEY
Dena Schlosser, the Plano mother who killed her babby by cutting off her arms, will soon be a free woman.
State District Judge Chris Oldner on Thursday ordered that Ms. Schlosser be released from Rusk State Hospital to continue her treatment as an outpatient.
The judge, who in 2006 found Ms. Schlosser not guilty by reason of insanity, determined that her needs "and the safety of the community can be met with outpatient services," according to court documents.
But Judge Oldner's ruling set strict conditions for her release – which probably will occur within a month – and her freedom will be revoked if she doesn't comply. The judge ordered that she have no unsupervised contact with minor children; comply with a birth control regimen that's supervised by a doctor; attend weekly mental health appointments; and continue her medication.
How the hell do you release somebody like this? This "insanity defense" is bullshit.
