Infamous Killer Mom Refuses WHAT?!

(GoRealNewsNow.com) – An infamous killer mother from Texas stated she would never leave the mental hospital she is in after she drowned her five young kids while suffering from postpartum psychosis.

A source confirmed that Andrea Yates declined a hearing last month that could have determined whether she was competent to be released. According to her conviction terms, she can have a review each year, but she has consistently declined these assessments.

On June 20, 2001, then 37-year-old Yates drowned her five children in the bathtub of their Houston home.

Moreover, court testimony revealed she waited for her husband to leave for work. Once he was gone, she began drowning her children—7-year-old Noah, 5-year-old John, 3-year-old Paul, 2-year-old Luke, and 6-month-old Mary —one by one.

Afterward, she called 911 repeatedly to report their deaths, then called her husband Rusty to come home. Yates faced five counts of capital murder.

While prosecutors called the crime “heinous” and sought the death penalty, the defense argued Yates had severe depression and psychosis due to her recent delivery, leading her to kill her children. They sought intensive mental health treatment instead of prison.

Yates was initially convicted of capital murder and sentenced to life. Even in prison, she had delusional thoughts, telling authorities she considered killing her kids for two years to save them from eternal damnation.

“My children weren’t righteous,” she told her jail psychiatrist. “They stumbled because I was evil. The way I was raising them, they could never be saved. They were doomed to perish in the fires of hell.”

Due to her mental state, Yates’ lawyers appealed, and she got a retrial. In 2006, she was found not guilty by reason of insanity.

Now 60-year.old Yates lives a quiet life at Kerrville State Hospital, meant for those acquitted of crimes and committed for inpatient mental health services.

She spends her days making greeting cards and crafts, often with rainbows and butterflies. She sells them at art shows and festivals, with proceeds going to the Yates Children’s Memorial Fund, helping those with postpartum depression.

The mom has internet access and spends time on the family website started by her husband, where she can view photos of the children she killed.
