Description

Susan Biancardi, who has a history of psychiatric problems, is charged with murdering her daughter. If she did it, should she receive treatment for mental illness or punishment for a heinous crime? The Boston Globe Magazine examines the ordeal of the Biancardi family and the debate over whether the insanity defense is a necessary safeguard in a just society, or is a loophole that lets the guilty get away with murder. (March 24, 1996)
