    This woman is waaaaaaaaaaaaaayyyy EVIL! For crying out loud, chasing the one son down the hallway to shoot him? Jeesh! What a whack-job! :banghead: She totally deserves the DP, but according to this article, the most she will get is LWOP. How unfortunate.

    Oh, my gosh, those little boys are precious. So beautiful, don't they look happay and proud? How very sad, how evil, that a momma can do this to her own flesh and blood.

    ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla. -- A mother is convicted in the slaying of her children.



    After six days of testimony, a jury deliberated only about three hours before returning its verdict: Leslie Demeniuk is guilty of two counts of first-degree murder in the shooting deaths of her 4-year-old twin sons in 2001.



    Prosecutor Noah McKinnon told the jury it was a brutal case of first-degree murder.



    During its closing arguments the prosecution retraced what occurred on March 17, 2001, when Demeniuk shot and killed her children.



    "It took time and the intent to kill was in her mind when she looked him in the face, put the gun to his forehead and pulled the trigger," McKinnon said.



    The defense argued that alcohol mixed with antidepressants led to the shocking incident and that Demeniuk was delusional when she shot the boys.



    However, McKinnon strongly disagreed. "All of the telephone calls, that day, were not psychotic. All of her actions, that day, were not psychotic," McKinnon said.
