Former astronaut admits she was crazy in love

Former Astronaut Lisa Nowak will pursue an insanity defense to defend charges she assaulted a romantic rival.

A Florida Judge unsealed that document today under a state law which allows prosecutors time to prepare.

Nowak faces attempted kidnapping and other charges in Orlando after allegedly attacking Colleen Shipman last February.

Her attorney says Nowak suffers from depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and other ailments.

Nowak has pleaded not guilty but has already publicly apologized to Shipman.

Nowak has also been dismissed by NASA.
