A complaint to the police that she is bizarre and has threatened to kill all the family members should suffice to get her picked up and evaluated. I am sorry but I don't know the specific regs in Mississippi. You can can go to the equivalent of adult protective services and raise a complaint. It would carry more weight if the people who were witness to her threatening to kill all the family members were petitioners. The husband could clearly be accused of bias and serving his own ends. Just be forewarned that this is not a easy job-but you may be saving a life. If she is as psychotic as you state she may not show at the courthouse and if you have the resources and she does not show you may require the services of a private investigator.
