    I don't feel sorry for this young lady. Everyone goes through things. We all know that Jesus did it for us. So what gives the right to take her kids life. I think they need to have taken pictures at the crime location and put them in her cell. There are alot of single mother who have a hard time. I think she just let the devil took over her life. She should have taken it to the lord for he knows what's best for her and her kids. Lord please watch over these babies. Amen!

    I can only think that this child has some mental issue going on. I don't agree with her action because the action was terrible. I just hope and pray she make peace with herself and her God. I hope that she receive the help that she need. I believe this young lady may have cried out for help and no one listened until it was to late. May God be with her and her family.

    I cannot understand how someone could do this to those children? She deserves the maximum for each count she faces. Noone should feel sorry for her. Those children did not deserve that pain she put them through.

    I am glad to see that she got what was coming to her. She should live everyday thinking about this shamful thing she has done to those little angels. Her crime will come with time but the worst is still to come cause she will one day face those babys and god as well.....

    This lady must have really been having some terrible mental health issues. She should have put the babies up for adoption if she did not want them or she should have never gotten pregnant. My God have mercy on her soul!
