(S.D.)-Woman Who Attacked Parents Headed To Group Home

     RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) - A South Dakota woman ruled by a judge to be insane after she tried to kill her parents is beginning a controlled re-entry into society.
     Casey Eleeson stabbed her father with a kitchen knife in his Rapid City home in December 2009 and then drove across town and shot her mother at her mother's home. She was apprehended almost a month later, hiding in a remote cabin in Colorado. Both parents recovered.
     A judge in February 2011 found Eleeson not guilty by reason of insanity and committed her to a human services center. Now, doctors say Eleeson is recovering. The judge is allowing her to move into a transitional facility, most likely in Watertown, under several conditions. She eventually could move into a group home in Rapid City.
