Mom not guilty due to insanity in son's death
CHICAGO — A Cook County judge has ruled a Chicago woman accused of suffocating her eight-month-old son as she battled a postpartum condition was not guilty by reason of insanity.
Judge James Linn called Janet Thies-Keogh a "very, very sick" woman before he rendered his decision Tuesday, after a bench trial.
Prosecutors argued 32-year-old Thies-Keogh planned to kill the baby and had been waiting for the moment to act when her husband left home for a gym Feb. 7, 2011.
