HOUSTON -- The attorney of a Houston woman who allegedly killed her 2-month-old son will use the insanity defense, according to court papers filed Friday.

Prosecutors charged Narjes Modarresi with capital murder after she led police to Masih Golabbakhsh's body in April.

Prosecutors said the baby was buried alive and his body was pulled from a shallow creek in the 8000 block of Woodway. According to a probable cause affidavit, he was found face-down in the mud.

Her attorney, George Parnham, said the 28-year-old woman has a history of postpartum depression.

Parnham is the same lawyer who successfully used the insanity defense when defending Andrea Yates, a woman who drowned her five children in a bathtub.
