Leatrice Brewer — who drowned her 1, 5, and 6-year-old children in her Long Island, NY apartment in February of 2008 — is now seeking a portion of their $350,000 estate.

Brewer, 33, was found not guilty of the bathtub drownings due to mental disease or defect. She reportedly believed she was saving her children from a voodoo curse and then tried (and failed) to commit suicide twice.

While her attorneys believe she shouldn’t be subject to the state law that prevent convicts from making money off of their crimes, the AP reports that Brewer probably wouldn’t receive any of the money because of a $1.2 million debt for her psychiatric counseling and services.

She’s currently in a New York state psychiatric hospital and is expected to testify about her estate request next month.

I think it's a pretty safe bet that this woman herself has no idea that the suit is even happening. This is insurance companies suing each other. Her health insurance company won't pay unless and until all other possible sources have been exhausted. That's what half of all medical malpractice suits are about, too. If you have a big bill, they won't pay unless you sue the doctor first, just in case s/he wasn't perfect.

That money went to the fathers when they sued the courts for not allowing them to have custody of their children when they knew that she was unstable.  They should not have to fork over one penny to her or for her "treatment"

Well I wonder where she got the idea to go after a portion of her dead children's estate.  Those zany shrinks treating her will get some money after all, I mean on top of what the State of New York paid them.

How about the lawers? They will have the first dibs on the money. Then if there is any money left then the shrinks.
