Meth blamed in Fresno mom stabs 3-year-old case

FRESNO, Calif.

/*Vanessa Rincon*/ is on trial for attempted murder. She admits she attacked the little boy, but she pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity.

One of the psychiatrists who examined her originally said she had a short-lived psychotic disorder, but changed his opinion before he testified Friday.

Dr. Thomas Callahan said, "It's a small change, but it's substance-induced psychotic disorder, amphetamine, with delusions, in remission."

Rincon told police who helped save her son that she thought he had the devil inside him. She later tested positive for meth.
