Nutty Model Gets off Light for Fatal Suicide Crash
According to her testimony, the killer, Jeanette Sliwinski, was attempting to commit suicide -- not murder -- when she drove at nearly 90 mph into the back of a car stopped at a red light in 2005. She also apologized to the families of those she killed, saying she did not mean to hurt anyone, although it is uncertain how she expected to hit an occupied car at nearly 90mph without injuring anyone aside from herself.
A defense psychiatrist had testified that Sliwinski, who pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity, suffered from a bipolar disorder with psychotic episodes, leading her to crash her car at 87 m.p.h. into stopped traffic at a Skokie stoplight. - [read more about this and how her attorney blames her doctor for the murders]
