"Laney was a deeply religious woman who home-schooled her children before mental illness drove her on May 10, 2003 to kill Joshua, 8, and Luke, 6 and injure Aaron, now 2, Files said during the trial."
Full story is here, though I would highly recommend not reading any more. In fact, I shouldn't have even showed you this. I wish I hadn't seen it. I always think of what the children must have felt, and what went through their minds as they were betrayed in so evil a way by the person on earth they trusted most.
I am happy my beliefs allow me to think that her punishment will be especially severe. And, I don't mean "life imprisonment" but the agony she will live with, and what will come after.
For those curious, God did speak to this subject in His word.

Luke 17:2 It were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he cast into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones.
