Sunni Jackson found not guilty by reason of insanity

A judge Tuesday ruled Sunni Jackson, the Paso Robles woman who killed her 61-year old mother, was not guilty by reason of insanity.

In November, Jackson pleaded guilty to second degree murder and not guilty by reason of insanity. The dual plea required a sanity phase in her case.

On Tuesday, the judge received reports from three doctors who evaluated Jackson and who all agreed she was mentally insane.

Police arrested Jackson in April of 2012 after her mother, Earlene Grove, was found dead inside her Olive Street home. She had been stabbed several times.

Jackson will be back in court on Thursday, when she will be remanded to a state hospital. She'll spend at least 180 days there but could be in a state hospital for the rest of her life.
