DALLAS - Dena Schlosser, who admitted killing her child by cutting off her baby girl's arms in 2004, was recently seen by a News 8 viewer working at a Walmart in Terrell.

Schlosser was found not guilty by reason of insanity, which is why Walmart said nothing showed up on a criminal background check.

Houston mother Andrea Yates was initially sentenced to life in prison for drowning her five children. However the verdict was overturned, and six years ago a jury found her not guilty by reason of insanity.

George Parnham represented Yates in court, and he joined News 8 live from Houston to discuss the public's reaction to Schlosser working at Walmart and what should happen to those found not guilty by reason of insanity in prominent trials.
