Fortunately, McGhee’s grandmother made an almost complete recovery.
She spoke to the court in regards to her granddaughter’s actions.
She expressed her love for her grandchild and was sincere in her belief that her actions were the result of a mental illness, Bradley said.
The mental health professional that examined McGhee informed the court that she was competent to stand trial and responsible for her actions.
Strict conditions have been applied to McGhee’s sentence and she must comply with all treatment in order to minimize the re-occurrence of the crime.
“I’m glad to see a good result and my compliments go out to the outstanding work from Detective Godwin and Maj. Hill,” Bradley said.
Godwin and Hill were deeply involved in handling the case from the beginning, he added.
“Because of the severe level of violence of the case, we all spent a lot of time handling all details carefully and we’re satisfied with the court’s results,” the assistant DA said.
