Even if your sentiment is in the right place, your reasoning is not. The simple fact is, even if this person committing the murder while not in the
right state of mind, all she has proven is that when she is not in the right state of mind she becomes a murderer. Thousands, if not a few million
people have moments of insanity where they do not kill someone. Sometimes stress causes something to break, sometimes they become slightly violent,
but the vast majority do not become killers.
People who plead temporary insanity for murder should get help, but afterwards they need to be segregated from the community as they have proven
themselves to be a unacceptable menace to the community.
As a side note, along side claims of being victims of abuse, insanity pleas seem to be societies "get women out of jail" cards. As America like most
Western nations is a Social Matriarchy(meaning at a social level America is a Matriarchy), women are often immune to the law or the full effect of the
law in much the same way free citizens in ancient Sumeria had to answer to lesser charges for killing people beneath their station in
