Kentucky Jury Rejects Insanity Defense

Published on Jun 15, 2010 at 11:35 pm in Legal News.

A Kentucky man named Sean Noakes, age 41, was rejected in his attempt to utilize an insanity defense yesterday, and was found guilty of Murder and Attempted Murder in connection with the attack of a mother and daughter in Boone Co.

A Kentucky Jury in Boone Circuit Court deliberated an hour and a half on Friday before returning the verdict of guilty. The jury recommended two consecutive life sentences for Noakes.

He was accused of stabbing Barbara Rogers and her 51-year-old daughter Sharon Gette in their Florence home in July 2008. Gette died from six stab wounds.

Psychiatrists and psychologists testified during the trial about his long history of mental illness and drug abuse.
