Central Coast Woman Pleads No Contest To Killing Mother

Posted on Wednesday, November 20, 2013 12:47am

A San Luis Obispo County woman entered a no contest plea to charges she murdered her mother, setting the stage for a trial on whether she was sane at the time of the killing.

Sunni Jackson pled no contest to charges she beat, and stabbed to death 61 year old Earlene Grove in April of 2012.

Some court ordered psychiatrists said they believe Jackson was legally insane at the time of the killing, but a prosecution psychologist is expected to weigh in on the case.

A trial on the sanity issue is set to take place next month.
