The Houston Chronicle reports doctors for Andrea Yates, the Clear Lake mother who killed her five children in 2001, have recommended that she be granted permission to attend group outings with other patients at the state psychiatric hospital where she has been institutionalized since a 2006 retrial found her innocent by reason of insanity, according to her attorney.



Yates, now 49, was initially convicted of capital murder for the drowning deaths of Noah, 7; John, 5; Paul, 3; Luke 2; and Mary, 6 months, in 2002 and sentenced to life in prison. An appeals court granted the new trial, after which she became an inpatient at Kerrville State Hospital.
