First off, that is very disturbing. Second of all why did she decide to do this in her bedroom? Why not the kitchen or his room?

I am shocked at the responce she gave to the witness she saw right after. Crazy she gave him the thumbs up sign.

Updated: Friday, 15 Jul 2011, 12:54 PM CDT

LLANO, Texas (KXAN) -

Holbrook had spent the previous three years in and out of the Llano County jail. The Llano District Attorney's office said it was Holbrook's father who picked her up from the Llano County jail last month were she was being held on an aggravated assault charge and a causing bodily injury charge.

.....................................snip......... ...................................

Bunyard said Holbrook was deemed incompetent to stand trial and she was sent to the Burnet State Hospital. She was still considered incompetent to stand trial after an evaluation one year later. Then, the psychiatric hospital sent the district attorney's office a report that state she would probably never be competent to stand trial, but based on her behavior was no longer a threat.

Bunyard said Holbrook was turned back over to Llano County who started scrambling to try and get her committed. ...............snip.............
