Plea deal for 12-year-old Maine girl charged in baby’s death angers infant’s mother ( Brooklyn Foss-Greenaway )

FAIRFIELD, Maine — A prosecutor’s proposal to dismiss a manslaughter charge against a 12-year-old girl in connection with the death of a 3-month-old nearly two years ago as part of a plea agreement is not sitting well with the infant’s mother.

 The Fairfield girl, whom the Bangor Daily News is not naming because she is a juvenile, was 10 years old when charged with reckless or criminally negligent manslaughter in the death of Brooklyn Foss-Greenaway on July 8, 2012.

Prosecution experts: Julie Schenecker understood killing her kids was wrong

TAMPA — The bar for criminal insanity is high in Florida, and Julie Schenecker, the New Tampa woman accused of killing her teenage children in 2011, hasn't met it, three mental health experts testified Wednesday.

 Retained by the prosecution, they trooped into the courtroom one after the other to refute testimony from the three experts hired by defense attorneys.
