Andrea Yates is an American citizen from Texas who suffered from very severe postpartum depression, postpartum psychosis and schizophrenia, and drowned her five children, aged six months to seven years, in their bathtub on June 20, 2001. She had past family history of depression, and her husband's unconventional religious beliefs pushed her towards having more kids, causing further depression which was not treated thoroughly. Her religious beliefs caused her to believe that her children were not developing properly and were doomed to hell, which convinced her to make the tragic decision to kill them. While she was denied the insanity defense at her first trial, the jury had refused death penalty and instead awarded her life sentence. At a later trial, she was found not guilty by reason of insanity and was committed to the North Texas State Hospital, a high-security mental health facility in Vernon, Texas. She currently resides in Kerrville State Hospital, a low-security mental hospital in Kerrville, Texas.
