Woman aquitted in son's hibachi grill death:  Li Rong Zhang in court
Li Rong Zhang, a Mass. woman charged with killing her 8-year-old son in a murder-suicide attempt, has been acquitted.
DEDHAM, Mass. — A Massachusetts woman charged with killing her 8-year-old son by lighting a hibachi-style charcoal grill inside a bedroom in their apartment and then barricading the door has been found not guilty by reason of insanity.

A Norfolk Superior Court judge on Tuesday acquitted Li Rong Zhang of murder in the January 2011 death of Brandon Yang.

Authorities say the 42-year-old Quincy woman intended to kill herself and her son.

They say she blocked the door and lit the grill, filling the room with poisonous fumes.

The boy died of carbon monoxide poisoning. His mother, found by another family member, survived.

Multiple medical experts testified that the mother lacked criminal responsibility at the time and exhibited psychotic depression with paranoid delusions and was suicidal.AP

Well, the way they make shows is, they make one show. That show's called a pilot. Then they show that show to the people who make shows, and on the strength of that one show they decide if they're going to make more shows.

Like you, I used to think the world was this great place where everybody lived by the same standards I did, then some kid with a nail showed me I was living in his world, a world where chaos rules not order, a world where righteousness is not rewarded. That's Cesar's world, and if you're not willing to play by his rules, then you're gonna have to pay the price.

You think water moves fast? You should see ice. It moves like it has a mind. Like it knows it killed the world once and got a taste for murder. After the avalanche, it took us a week to climb out. Now, I don't know exactly when we turned on each other, but I know that seven of us survived the slide... and only five made it out. Now we took an oath, that I'm breaking now. We said we'd say it was the snow that killed the other two, but it wasn't. Nature is lethal but it doesn't hold a candle to man.

You see? It's curious. Ted did figure it out - time travel. And when we get back, we gonna tell everyone. How it's possible, how it's done, what the dangers are. But then why fifty years in the future when the spacecraft encounters a black hole does the computer call it an 'unknown entry event'? Why don't they know? If they don't know, that means we never told anyone. And if we never told anyone it means we never made it back. Hence we die down here. Just as a matter of deductive logic.
