(KSL News) -- The women accused of kidnapping and killing her granddaughter will most likely spent the rest of her life in a mental institution.
Kelly Lodmell was found innocent by insanity of taking her 19-month old granddaughter and drowning her in the Snake River in Idaho.
Friday morning, the court ruled Lodmell presents a danger to the public and needs long term treatment in a secure facility.
Attorneys on both sides believe an institution is a best place for Lodmell.
Her family agrees, but still, the news hit hard.
Richard Lambert, Assistant U.S. Attorney: "Miss Lodmell was or is a very disturbed individual and a highly dangerous individual."
Linda Lodmell, Kelly's Mother: "Yeah, she murdered the baby, but I will never see Kelly again."
Lodmell has been committed indefinitely.
