EPPING, N.H. (AP) – Jurors who will decide whether an Epping woman was insane when she killed two men will visit her property next month but won’t go inside her home.

Sheila LaBarre has pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity to the murders of two of her boyfriends, Kenneth Countie and Michael Deloge. The trial next month will determine whether she should be sent to prison for life or to the state prison’s secure psychiatric unit, where she would be evaluated every five years.

Before testimony begins, jurors will travel to the horse farm where LaBarre killed the men. Police say vandals have destroyed much of the farmhouse since LaBarre’s 2006 arrest, and jurors won’t be allowed inside because it has been deemed unsafe.

They will see a memorial to Countie along the driveway, where friends and relatives have left flowers, messages and pictures.
