    Mustang man claims insanity in slaying (newsok.com)
    Murder defendant, Morgan E. Cline, of Mustang, claims he was insane when he fatally
    shot his father in bed in an Oklahoma City home. Insanity defense is used rarely at trials.

    The insanity plea was not a sudden idea on the part of the defense; this article's from April 2009:
    While insanity defenses are so rarely used as to be not worth the rage that we feel when someone does in effect try to excuse his or her behaviors with that plea, I'm a bit dubious about it in this case. (Googling will produce a number of case specific articles.)
