Woman who called Texas shooting a hoax committed to facility
SUTHERLAND SPRINGS, Texas (AP) — A judge has committed a 56-year-old woman to a psychiatric facility after she and her boyfriend told a Texas church where a gunman killed more than two-dozen worshippers that the massacre was a hoax.
The San Antonio Express-News reports that U.S. District Judge Richard Farrer on Tuesday ordered that Jodie Mann be committed to a federal prison for mental health treatment. Court records indicate Mann also goes by the name “Conspiracy Granny.”
The two face a variety of charges.
