Today a Houston, Texas jury will hear testimony from a police sergeant who gave the order to arrest Andrea Yates last June for the drowning deaths of her five children.
(------------)
[VO-NAT]
[SUPER=03-Houston, TX;]


It'll be the second day of Yates' capital murder trial.
The defense told jurors yesterday that Yates is not a killer, but a longtime victim of severe post- partum depression.
Prosecutors agree that she suffered from mental illness -- but contend Yates knew her actions were wrong.
If convicted, Yates could get the death penalty.
If she's found innocent by reason of insanity, she could be placed in a mental institution for the rest of her life.

"In God We Trust" may soon be on display in Virginia's courtrooms, but only if the state has enough money to make it happen.
While the State Senate approved legislation that would require posting of the national motto, lawmakers added a provision requiring the state to pay for the plaques.
A related bill placing the motto in public schools comes up again later today.
Meanwhile a House committee will carry over legislation that would prohibit the execution of the mentally retarded.
The U-S Supreme Court is now considering the issue in a Virginia death row case, and lawmakers say they want to wait for a ruling before deciding on Senator John Edwards' bill.
