2002: In Houston, Texas, Andrea Yates receives a life sentence for murdering her five children in the family bathtub on June 20, 2001. Yates had been suffering from very severe postpartum depression and postpartum psychosis when she drowned the children. Her conviction was later overturned on appeal and after a new trial she was found not guilty by reason of insanity on July 26, 2006. Since then, she has been committed to mental hospitals in Texas.
