Aberdeen woman enters insanity plea in fatal stabbing

November 14, 2018

ABERDEEN, S.D. (AP) — A South Dakota woman accused of fatally stabbing another woman this summer has pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity.

Thirty-eight-year-old Tanisha Renee Jordan-Mondo of Aberdeen entered her plea Wednesday and requested a jury trial.

Jordan-Mondo was arrested in August following an investigation into the death of 37-year-old Michelle Ladner. Police and emergency responders found Ladner when they were called to a medical emergency at her apartment building in Aberdeen on July 19. She was suffering from stab wounds and died six days later at a Sioux Falls hospital.

The American News reports a trial date was not immediately set. Jordan-Mondo remains in the Brown County Jail.
