Sydney Powell, the 23 year-old Akron woman accused of fatally stabbing her mother 3 years ago has been found guilty on multiple counts including murder, felonious assault, and tampering with evidence.

During testimony, experts gave differing opinions on whether Powell was sane at the time of the murder with the defendant having entered a plea of not guilty by reason of insanity.
