Back To Square One; Other Squares Flee

Sandra Baumgartner was a nurse living with her parents and taking her medications. For a while. Then she stopped taking her meds, met a guy, and stabbed him 120 times.

The courts found her not guilty by reason of insanity and were going to set her free. Public outcry stopped that, forcing the judge to put her into MMHI for the psychiatric evaluation he was going to bypass. She's back on her meds and stabilised again. But she can't stay there indefinitely, so the judge has released her again.

She's not a nurse any more, but she's back at home with her parents, taking her meds. For now.
