Wednesday and Thursday are Weather Aware days due to the potential for locally heavy rainfall. Beware of flooded road-ways and never drive around barricades or into water more than six inches deep. High rainfall rates may reduce visibility and also increase the risk of hydroplaning. Turn around, don’t drown! Isolated strong thunderstorms may develop late Wednesday afternoon, but widespread severe weather does not appear to be likely at this time.
8-13-04 - McKINNEY, Texas (AP) A Plano woman acquitted by reason of insanity in the death of one of her daughters still faces a capital-murder charge in the death of another.
A jury in McKinney returned the innocent verdict Thursday in the case of 33 year old Lisa Ann Diaz. Their mother now goes to a maximum security state facility for mental evaluation.
Diaz was tried on one count of capital murder for the death of five-year-old daughter Briana Diaz. She still faces another capital murder charge in the death of her three-year-old daughter Kamryn Diaz at their home.
Prosecutors will review their options on that count in light of yesterday's verdict. Diaz has an older daughter from a previous marriage.
