Judge Will Rule August 6 On Sparrow

On August 6, Judge Thomas Ross will rule on whether Victoria Sparrow is criminally responsible for her three-year-old daughter’s death. The Stevensville resident admitted to poisoning Laci Sparrow as part of a botched murder-suicide. Sparrow’s defense team says she needs psychiatric help, not hard-core time, and is hoping the judge will commit her to an institution instead of prison.
