Andrea Yates' elderly mother choked back tears Tuesday while defending her daughter as a wonderful parent, and testified that her "baby daughter" was not the same woman who drowned her five children.

As Andrea Yates was formally sentenced to life in prison Monday for drowning her children, some of her relatives accused her husband of not doing enough to help her. State District Judge Belinda Hill told Yates she was going to prison for two concurrent life terms for drowning three of her children. "Good luck to you, Mrs. Yates," Hill said as she dismissed the 37-year-old former nurse, who will be eligible for parole in 2041.

Andrea Yates was the shy, pretty baby of a suburban family, a girl who spoiled the German shepherd, raced on the swim team and graduated valedictorian of her high school class. Until this summer, her story appeared to be that of a simple, quiet and utterly unremarkable Christian woman. She wore neat spectacles and had streaming hair. She married a NASA computer expert, settled in a plain brick house a few miles from her childhood home and had five babies.
