UPDATE: Medical Lake Woman Stabs 8-Year-Old Daughter To Death

SPOKANE, Wash. - A Medical Lake woman who stabbed her eight-year-old daughter to death over a decade ago has been denied unsupervised release from Eastern State Hospital.

On Tuesday Sharon  Curry's parole officer Jo Eggen-Smith told Judge Michael Price she has several concerns about lifting Curry's supervision order, which would essentially allow Curry to live a normal life with no conditions.

Curry was found guilty by reason of insanity back in 1999 for the murder of her daughter Jessica who she stabbed to death while she was sitting in her lap in the front seat of her car. Curry blamed Adderall for her psychotic behavior, but according to the courts has since stopped using drugs.

Curry has been out of Eastern State Hospital on supervised release for the last few years but now wants the state's additional conditions lifted. Some of those conditions include no contact with minors and mandatory urinalysis tests. Eggen-Smith argues Curry could revert back to drug use without supervision and has a history of being untruthful to the Department of Corrections.

The defense argued Curry is a changed woman who would simply like a chance to have a normal and productive life.
