BATON ROUGE - A judge ruled Thursday that a Zachary woman was not guilty by reason of insanity in the 2012 killing of her 2-month-old child.

A panel of doctors testified last year that Sabrina Maiden, 23, was not sane when her child was killed.

Judge Chip Moore ordered Maiden to the state hospital in Jackson.

Police arrested Maiden in April 2012 on suspicion of first degree murder. Investigators said they found her son, Prince Javeion Brown, abandoned in a field in Zachary on April 10. He later died, and an autopsy found Brown had suffered blunt force trauma before his death.

News 2 will have more on the ruling tonight starting at 4 p.m.
