It says Elder heard voices when she got to the SUV, and then drove it into the side of the store and hit her mother.

Court of Queen’s Bench Justice Brian Burrows has found Elder not guilty of attempted murder and not criminally responsible because of a mental disorder on the two other charges.

The decision will now go to the Alberta Review Board, which is an independent tribunal established under the Criminal Code of Canada to make and review dispositions in such cases.
