Trial of accused Tampa woman enters 5th day

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - Attorneys for a woman accused of killing her two teenagers will continue to present their case in Hillsborough County court.

The attorneys are trying to show that 53-year-old Julie Schenecker was insane in January of 2011 when she shot her 16-year-old daughter and 13-year-old son.

Monday will be the trial's fifth day.

On Friday, Schenecker yelled, “Liar!” at a psychiatrist who was testifying that he had told her not to drink while taking drugs to control her bipolar disorder.

Judge Emmett Battles immediately stopped the hearing, ordered the jury out and admonished Schenecker, telling her she would be restrained if she had another outburst.

She's charged with two counts of first-degree murder. The state is not seeking the death penalty.
