This makes me so sick. How can parents do this? The suffering these children went through. My heart aches for them. These people need to suffer the same fate.

Why do people like that have children? i know a few different couples who would have adopted those babies. It's so sad.

It is sick. When I think about what I would do for my child; I'd walk through fire, step in front of a train, and I daresay most parents would do the same for their kids. And this woman couldn't even feed and look in on her two kids??? What was she doing during the time she wasn't checking on the kids? Watching TV? Playing video games? Sleeping? I just can't imagine ...

Consider that there are people in the world that can't have children and then we have these other people that breed children and don't take care of them. I have a five year old and "check" on her by the minute when I am home with her. Unbelieveable!!!! What people do do their own children!!!!!!!!

Sterilize her my foot, put her away forever or put her in the chair! Anyone, and I mean ANYONE who hurts little kids doesn't deserve the right to be treated as a normal, civilized human, because they are NOT normal, civilized humans. It's really heartbreaking, there's couples out there who would love kids and can't have them, and then you see creatures like this killing their kids. I mean, animals will put themselves in danger to protect their young!

Gee, I wonder why she'd want her statements and items taken from her home barred from the trial? Maybe because it all PROVES she caused the death of her own child! What this woman did just sickens me! The suffering those children endured because their own mother didn't want to take care of them is inexcusable! She belongs right where she is...in jail!

If Amanda Trindle is released to her mother's custody, that would put her in the same home where Leland Leonard(the baby who survived) was "sentenced" to go for visiting by a Bucks County judge 2 days per week and one overnight per month.
Hey Denise....how about actually changing Leland's clothing or wiping his behind when he has to be at your house instead of trying to get your murderous daughter released to ruin his life?????

I wonder if that judge knows that Denise has Leland, the other child who was on life support, at her home 2 days per week as ordered by a judge in Bucks County.......and she(Denise) is also fighting for full custody even thought Leland is in a happy healthy home and she did NOT want him when Jade was found dead. Sure, let's send Amanda home so they can mistreat Leland and ruin his life. Great Idea.
And how does that work with sentencing a person for a crime that they are not being tried for? Donald Leonard pled guilty for the charges against him, yet the judge INCREASED his sentence for things he did 5 years ago and was already sentenced for.
So, the mother who stayed at home all the time might get released to HER mother who idly watched as Amanda starved her children while the father who worked over 60 hours a week gets his sentence increased for admitting guilt?

I wonder how many people know Leland was sexually molested under the Earp-Pitkins care.
