Prosecution rebuttal testimony continues today in the retrial of Andrea Yates in the drowning of her five children.

Prosecutors say they plan to call the same forensic psychiatrist whose testimony inadvertently led to Yates' first conviction in 2002 being thrown out. She's pleaded innocent by reason of insanity.

A sheriff's deputy who overheard Andrea Yates' interview with a jail psychiatrist testified yesterday that he heard Yates say she knew what she did was wrong.

A pediatric pathologist who reviewed the autopsy and crime scene photos and Yates' police confession testified her behavior "was organized and methodical."
