(Jacksonville, FL) -- The woman charged with murder in the shooting death of a mother of two at the Shands Jacksonville Hospital pharmacy pleaded not guilty yesterday. Last month, 46-year-old Brenda Joyce Coney admitted to police that she shot 37-year-old pharmacy clerk Shannon McCants several times. There were many witnesses as the room was crowded with clients. Homicide investigators say the shooting was premeditated. They say it was the result of a confrontation between Coney and McCants that happened days before when Coney got out of a line of customers and tried to cut back in. Coney's attorney announced yesterday he is mounting an insanity defense. He says a court psychologist examined Corey and found her not competent to be prosecuted. The state attorney's office will have their own psychologist examine her. Coney's stepmother says the defendant has a history of mental problems and was on medication.
Just the fact...that this kind of gargabe is allowed, is a slap in the face to ALL potential victims.
My solution is to keep her on the medication so she can take the 'conviction and death penalty' much easier....:nutkick:
