    What a tragic loss of both young people. It doesn't sound as if he was in his right mind at the moment he killed her. One article said that he had untreated depression and may have been self-medicating with beer and weed. He also claims he had suppressed anger issues. Often, serious mental illness such as schizophrenia shows up in the mid-twenties. It's hard to know what happened. I imagine an attorney would encourage an insanity defense, but I expect that he will accept a plea and take whatever punishment he is given. He sounds remorseful, but very ill. JMO

    Would an insanity plea be acceptable at trial if a case could be made, i.e., should he be allowed hospitalization over prison for her murder?

    I think that would be something atty's and prosecutors would have to discuss,depending on state R/R's. That would mean intensive therapy, as well as proper meds.

    Has anyone found examples of her poetry online?

    Two arty types from Bard; in one way this is typical (man kills woman) but in other ways....
