    Confessed mass killer Anders Behring Breivik smiles as he arrives in the courtroom, Friday, Aug. 24, 2012, in Oslo, Norway. A Norwegian court sentenced Anders Behring Breivik to prison on Friday, denying prosecutors the insanity ruling they hoped would show that his massacre of 77 people was the work of a madman, not part of an anti-Muslim crusade. Reading the ruling, Judge Wenche Elisabeth Arntzen handed down a sentence of "preventive detention" of at least 10 years and a maximum of 21 years. (AP Photo/Heiko Junge/NTB scanpix, Pool)

    In this Jan. 5, 2010 booking mug provided by the Franklin Sheriff's Office in Apalachicola, Florida, shows Marianne Bordt. Bordt is accused of drowning her five-year-old grandson in Apalachicola on Jan. 4, 2010. The 73-year-old German woman is facing a possible death sentence although it is unlikely that penalty ever would be carried out. Her lawyer contends Mrs. Bordt is not guilty by reason of insanity in part to physical and psychological damage she suffered from a World War II bombing raid. A pre trial hearing is scheduled for Friday, Aug. 17th, 2012. (AP Photo/ Franklin County Sheriff's Office)
