We had a doctor here who murdered his two children and got off with a plea of "temporary insanity" (fortunately this is being revisited). Which I really used to think only happened in movies. People always seem to think the death of a child is a red flag in the criminal justice system and harsher penalties apply but that only seems to be true when it's not the parents doing the killing.
