Mother Did The Unthinkable To Her 2-Year-Old And 13-Year-Old Daughters - Now She's Facing The Consequences

An Oregon mom is standing trial on charges of aggravated murder and aggravated attempted murder against her two children, and the defense is offering up an insanity plea as a reason for the unfolding of the horrific events. According to the Daily Mail, the mom in question flashed smiles for the awaiting cameras during a recent court appearance.

Jessica Smith, 41, has pleaded not guilty to the charges in front of her. The woman’s defense team has claimed she suffered from a ‘disordered mental state’ at the time of the crimes, but the prosecution is crying foul at those claims.

The charges stem from a horrific attack that Jessica administered on her children at a hotel in Canon Beach. She’s accused of doping up her two-year-old daughter on antihistamines before drowning the girl in the bath tub, and slashing the throat and wrists of her 13-year-old daughter before taking off.

A hotel worker would find the 13-year-old - who survived the attack - and the girl would tell her about what her mother did. Police were summoned, and Jessica was apprehended two days later on a remote road. She was in the midst of a bitter divorce and custody battle with her husband, Greg Smith, and was scheduled to hand the girls over to him on the day of the attack.

Greg had requested that Jessica undergo a court-ordered psychological evaluation after she had missed a hearing on the custody hearing, and was also increasingly concerned about troubling text messages he had received from her.
