Mindy McCready’s Alcohol Treatment

An Arkansas judge has ordered Mindy McCready to be committed to a treatment facility to deal with mental health and alcohol issues, according to People magazine. During Wednesday’s (Feb. 6) hearing, the 37-year-old singer acknowledged drinking too much alcohol while grieving the Jan. 13 shooting death of her boyfriend, record producer David Wilson, at the home they shared in Heber Springs, Ark. He is the father of McCready’s 9-month-old son Zayne. Authorities are still trying to determine if Wilson shot himself. Although McCready has not been named as a suspect in the case, in an interview that aired Jan. 29 on NBC News, she denied shooting him. The infant and McCready’s other child, 6-year-old Zander, have been removed from her home and are currently in foster care. On Jan. 30, Zander’s father, Billy McKnight, filed court petitions requesting that Zander be returned to his custody in Florida. McCready’s Top 10 hits include “Guys Do It All the Time,” “Ten Thousand Angels” and “A Girl’s Gotta Do (What a Girl’s Gotta Do).”
