Insanity plea in Taylor County child-asphyxiation case

MEDFORD (AP) - A central Wisconsin woman accused of trying to kill four of her six children to spare them the pain of her divorce has pleaded insanity.

Thirty-seven-year-old Heidi S. Mann of Rib Lake is charged with four counts of attempted first-degree intentional homicide. She's being held on $200,000 bail.

Online court records say she entered two pleas Monday: not guilty and not guilty by reason of mental disease or defect. She'll now be evaluated by a mental-health professional.

She's accused of putting her four youngest kids in an SUV and letting the engine run in a closed garage for two hours. Prosecutors say she was worried they couldn't handle her divorce.

The children survived without any apparent effects. They were 3, 6 and 9 and 12.

Defense attorney Shawn Paul declined to comment.
