Former Astronaut To Pursue Insanity Defense
(AP) ORLANDO, Fla. Former astronaut Lisa Nowak is pursuing an insanity defense on charges that she assaulted and tried to kidnap a romantic rival, according to a document released Tuesday.
Circuit Court Judge Marc L. Lubet unsealed Nowak's notice of intent to rely on a mental health defense. Florida law requires such a notice before trial to let prosecutors prepare.
