Defence attorney Rachel Fiset, a managing partner Los Angeles-based Zweiback, Fiset & Zalduendo LLP, told The Independent that to argue insanity her lawyer would have to convince a jury that she could not tell right from wrong.

“The fact that they’re calling it a psychosis instead of a depression does seem to set up the argument that she would have perhaps lost the ability to differentiate between right and wrong,” Ms Fiset said.

“If she is claiming to hear voices as a result of postpartum psychosis, if that is shown to be true there is no reason why the insanity defense would not apply.”
