Psychologist finds mother competent and sane in deadly fire case
A court-appointed psychologist in Hamilton has determined that a woman accused of starting a mobile home fire that killed her seven-month-old son is sane and competent to stand trial. Twenty-nine-year-old Aimee Leonard is charged with involuntary manslaughter and child endangering. She has entered a plea of innocent by reason of insanity in Butler County Common Pleas Court. Judge Matthew Crehan is expected to rule on the competency issue at a hearing today, barring a request by Leonard's attorney for a second opinion.
