Letter: Killer could use psychiatric help

Regarding “New Orleans woman gets 20-year sentence for stabbing lover to death,” I believe that the verdict for Yolanda Davis was fair as it was proven to be in the heat of passion, but I feel as though she should definitely be receiving some form of psychiatric help while in prison.

From what it looks like in her case, she could certainly benefit from getting the help that a professional can provide and she can, perhaps, get better while she is locked up.

Hopefully, she can get help and improve herself to avoid any more crimes.
