Judges: Ohio Mom Not Guilty of Daughters' Drowning

By  | 

CLEVELAND – A three-judge panel in Cleveland has ruled a mother is not guilty by reason of insanity in the drowning deaths of her two young daughters in a bathtub.

The judges returned the verdict Friday in the murder case against 23-year-old Amber Hill. The judges say evidence showed the woman didn't understand the wrongfulness of her actions.

Hill is charged with aggravated murder in the deaths of 4-year-old Janelle Cintron and 2-year-old Cecess (ceh-CEHS') Hill in October 2007.

She had pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity. Her attorney says Hill heard voices telling her to "do it, do it!"
