Hospital to Release Mom Cleared in Attempted Murder of Kids

Posted: Updated:
VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (AP) - A Virginia woman charged with attempting to kill her two children by putting prescription drugs in their ice cream in 2013 will soon be released from a state psychiatric hospital.
 
Lorita Aiken was found not guilty by reason of insanity.
 
The Virginian-Pilot reports that Circuit Judge Les Lilley heard from three psychologists and a psychiatrist who testified Wednesday that they believe Aiken no longer poses a danger to herself or others.
 
The judge said Aiken can be released from Eastern State Hospital to live in a transitional group home.
 
She will be required to continue receiving therapy and won't be allowed to contact her children unless a juvenile court judge approves it. The children live in North Carolina with their father.
