By Christopher Brooke, Reporter

HILLSVILLE — A Dugspur woman found not guilty by reason of insanity in the 2006 beating death of her mother is ready and able to rejoin the community under an outpatient treatment plan, a Carroll Circuit Court judge ruled on April 9.

Doctors diagnosed Rene Loving Turman as bipolar with psychotic features and found that she did not understand the nature of her actions at the time of the February 2006 incident that left 79-year-old Susan Sprinkle Clark dead.

Turman told a police dispatcher at the time that she thought her mother was a demon.
