Jodi Henry Acquitted of Attempted Child Murder
A jury has just acquitted a Valley mother accused of trying to kill her two daughters.
Prosecutors say Jodi Henry laced her daughter's ice cream sodas with prescription medication.
They claimed she was angry and depressed and planned to kill herself as well.
Both Alana and Nikki survived. Their mother's attorney says she never intended to kill the girls. But the anti-depressants she was taking gave her insomnia and that led to what he calls a "psychotic break".
