A mother who was deemed insane after drowning her 3-year-old daughter in the bathtub has been allowed to walk free from jail just three years later - because doctors say she regained her sanity.
Jennifer Bigham, from Patterson, California, admitted killing the toddler in 2010 and was found not guilty of murder by reason of insanity.
After doctors ruled she is now sane, Bigham has been allowed to walk free and was released from jail on Tuesday.
The 26-year-old was pictured smiling in her blue hospital gown as she was released from the hospital.
Two relatives who were in the home at the time of the drowning heard the little girl splash and scream. By the time they got to the bathroom, she was unconscious and Bigham had stabbed herself and locked herself inside a bedroom.
The judge’s decision is said to be extremely rare, especially because the judge did not send her to a psychiatric hospital after the ruling, but to jail.
