A woman who admitted to killing her daughter while in the midst of a psychotic episode was found not criminally responsible for the death on Wednesday.
Christine Longridge cried as Court of Queen’s Bench Justice Wayne Renke described Rachael Longridge’s death as a “catastrophe” after finding that the mother believed she had “moral authority” to take her daughter’s life.
“Christine Longridge will live a tormented life for the rest of her life,” her defence lawyer Dino Bottos said, speaking outside the courthouse after the verdict.
He said his client wanted everyone to know that she loved her daughter.”
