Why could she not just get off on the “insanity” defense like all the other child-killing women usually do? I thought it was automatic?

Summary of Incident
On 08/26/1998, Basso and co-defendants kidnapped a 59-year old retarded white male and intentionally caused his death by beating him with belts, baseball bats, steel-toed boots, hands, and feet. Basso was the leader of the group and encouraged all the co-defendants to abuse the victim. The murder was committed for proceeds from an insurance policy on the victim (in which Basso was named the beneficiary) as well as other assets in which Basso was named heir. Basso had wooed the victim into leaving his family and friends in New Jersey and moving to Texas, under the guise that she would marry him. The victim was found in a ditch with injuries so horrendous that the body was unrecognizable.

Were co-defendants all women? Was it a lesbian issue?

Good. More female psychopaths need killing, if for no other reason than to enact respect for equal rights.

You have to admit, Texas is being fair. We kill Mexicans who kill Americans that Americans won’t kill AND white women, not just minority men accuse of crimes.
We’re equal opportunity executioners.

Well, apparently it was a very well premeditated conspiracy. Most of these “sweetheart swindle” cases are, well premeditated, anyway. In most states there need to be aggravating circumstances too, and I don’t know the law in Texas, but torture is often one. So is murder along with another felony.

But it's pronounced "Throatwarbler Mangrove."
