"I wonder how my kids are doing ..."

Lashaun Harris (or in some news reports, LaShuan Harris) has pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity in the murder of her three young children. The sad recounting of her current delusions is even sadder because if and when she is restored to competency, she will know the full weight of what she did.
In her videotaped confession to police, Harris described how she struggled with two of her boys as she stripped them and plunged them from Pier 7 in an area where tourists stroll along the waterfront. Her youngest boy laughed, thinking it was a game ....

In January, she said, ''I wonder how my kids are doing, if someone good is looking over them.'' She told one family member, ''T.J. is in school and Josh is walking and talking.'' She said her dead grandmother bathes them and ensures they eat properly.
