Starla Money Found Not Guilty by Reason of Mental Disorder

A Houston County woman on trial following a shooting rampage has been found not guilty by reason of mental disease or defect.

Starla Money was charged with reckless endangerment.

She was accused of firing a gun randomly in her Grangerburg home in May of last year.

That led to a seven-hour stand off with police before she finally surrendered.

The defense contended Money suffers from mental illness. A jury agreed after deliberating about 45 minutes.

Judge Jerry White ordered Money take her medication, avoid alcohol and other drugs and to attend counseling.

Otherwise, Money could be committed to a state mental health facility.
