Here is a timelime of the Teresa Moses case, from her arrest in the killing of her 8-year-old son in October 2006 to her release from Napa State Hospital in March 2013.

  • Oct. 26, 2006: Moses, a 23-year-old single mother of two, calls 911 to report she found her 8-year-old son, Raijon Daniels, unconscious by a pool of his vomit. Upon entering Moses' South 40th Street apartment in Richmond, emergency responders are overwhelmed by the stench of household cleaners. Investigators would later say Moses used them to torture the boy.

  • Oct. 27, 2006: Raijon dies of trauma from long-term child abuse. Moses is arrested and Raijon's 3-year-old half-sister is put into foster care.

  • Nov. 16, 2006: About 200 people attend a memorial for Raijon at the Berkeley Mt. Zion Missionary Baptist Church, which Moses and her son attended. Parishioners pray for both mother and child.

  • January 2007: The Contra Costa coroner's office concludes Raijon died of trauma because of battered child syndrome. An autopsy report details years of abuse that left his slender body thatched from head to toe and front to back with burn marks, scars, swelling and purple bruises with "train track" patterns. It says Raijon also suffered from ketoacidosis, dangerously high levels of acids that build up in the blood and can lead to diabetic coma or death. Although diabetes is a possible cause, the report suggests that for Raijon, starvation was a more likely culprit.

  • January 2007: The director of Contra Costa County Employment and Human Services vows a better handling of child abuse cases. Child welfare workers had fielded six allegations of child abuse or neglect involving Raijon or his younger half-sister between 2002 and January 2006, none of which resulted in any action against Moses.

  • March 2007: Moses pleads not guilty to child endangerment and torture charges filed in connection with Raijon's death. The plea was delayed for months to await receipt of an autopsy report.

  • August 2007: A preliminary hearing judge orders Moses to stand trial on torture and child abuse charges.

  • September 2007: The Contra Costa District Attorney's Office adds murder to Moses' charges.

  • October 2007: Moses pleads not guilty to murder charges.

  • August 2008: State appeals court affirms Contra Costa County Juvenile Court order denying Moses any contact with her daughter. Visitation requested by Moses was denied based on a report by county family services that said the girl was "clearly traumatized at the simple mention of (her mother's) name." Teresa Moses caused "severe emotional damage" to her daughter through her exposure to the "ongoing torture of the child's half-sibling, who ultimately died of his injuries," the First District Court of Appeal said in its decision.

  • April 2009: Moses changes her plea from not guilty to not guilty by reason of insanity.

  • June 2009: Three independent, court-appointed doctors agree that Moses was legally insane when she committed the abuse that led to Raijon's death.

  • Nov. 16, 2009: Contra Costa Superior Court Judge Charles Burch finds that Moses was legally insane based on the doctor's reports.

  • Jan. 5, 2010: Moses is sentenced to 25 years to life at Napa State Hospital.

  • Late 2012: Moses petitions for release from the hospital.

  • February 2013: A judge orders Moses released into a conditional release program based on doctors' reports that she is no longer a danger to society

  • March 2013: Moses is released from the hospital and housed at an undisclosed Contra Costa County location. She is subjected to an ongoing treatment program that will be overseen by the state.
