Judge: No Estate Rights For NY Mom Who Killed Kids

By Frank Eltman of Associated Press

November 6, 2013

Brewer drowned her three children in 2008 and is now seeking a piece of their estate.

Attorney Peter Kelly had said Leatrice Brewer was seeking a share of the children's $350,000 estate as a way of blocking their fathers from getting the money.

MINEOLA, NY — A judge says a New York woman who drowned her three children in 2008 is not entitled to a share of their estate.

The ruling was made Wednesday in the case of Leatrice Brewer.

Attorney Peter Kelly had said she was seeking a share of the children's $350,000 estate as a way of blocking their fathers from getting the money.

Brewer's bid hinged on whether New York's "Son of Sam" law that bars criminals from profiting from their crimes applied to her case. But the judge at the Long Island hearing had noted that because she was never convicted, Brewer might not be subject to the law.

Brewer, 33, slashed her daughter's throat before drowning her and two younger brothers in 2008, believing she was saving them from the deadly effects of voodoo. Hours after the killings, she survived two suicide attempts — swallowing a concoction of home cleaning fluids and later jumping out a second-story window.

She was found not guilty because of mental disease or defect in the deaths of the children, ages 1, 5 and 6, and was committed to a state psychiatric hospital.

The money comes from lawsuits the fathers settled with Nassau County over claims that social services workers failed to properly monitor Brewer.

Woman Who Drowned Her 3 Children in the Bathtub Gives Birth to 4th in a Psych Ward After Conceiving WHILE Incarcerated

She has since given birth to a 4th child conceived while in psych ward

11 October 2013

A woman who admitted drowning her three young children in her Long Island bathtub five years ago has given birth to a fourth child while incarcerated in a secure psychiatric hospital, the I-Team has reported.

Leatrice Brewer, 33, was found not guilty because of mental disease or defect in the 2008 deaths of her children, and has been held ever since at the secure Mid-Hudson Forensic Psychiatric Center in New Hampton.

Her case returned to the public eye recently because she is trying to collect $350,000 from a settlement that the childrens’ fathers won from Nassau County in wrongful death lawsuits.

But now, Innocent Demesyeux, the father of two of the three children Brewer killed, says he has been contacted by a lawyer trying to find an appropriate placement for the newborn Brewer had while in custody.

'She told me Leatrice had a baby while she was in that facility,' Mr Demesyeux said in an interview.

It is unclear who the new baby’s father is, or under what circumstances Brewer became pregnant. The state Office of Mental Health, which oversees Mid-Hudson, declined to comment, citing privacy laws.

Attorney Tom Foley, who represents Mr Demesyeux, said 'it's outrageous' that Brewer was able to conceive a child while incarcerated.

'This person's supposedly in a secure facility and she gets pregnant. This is the woman who had no idea what she was doing when she murdered her children.'

Leatrice Brewer admitted she drowned the children in the bathtub of her apartment in New Cassel, on Long Island about 20 miles east of New York City, in February 2008.

Because she was technically found not responsible for the children's deaths, lawyers say she may be able to claim some or all of the $350,000 estate their fathers won.

However, even if the judge rules she can collect, Brewer is not expected to see any of the money. "There is a $1.2 million security payment listed against her for the cost of psychiatric counseling and other services she has received since her arrest", lawyers have said.

Another option the court could consider is to award some or all of the money to Brewer's baby as her heir.

It is unclear who currently has custody of the newborn.

After Nassau Surrogates Court Judge Edward McCarty decides whether Brewer is entitled to collect, he must make a similar ruling about the children's two fathers. If he finds that the men effectively abandoned their children, they may not be entitled to any money, lawyers say.

The judge has scheduled a hearing on the matter on November 6.

Brewer's case drew has drawn attention to the actions of Nassau County's social services agency, whose caseworkers visited the mother's apartment two days before the killings and found no one home but neglected to schedule an immediate follow-up visit. Two social workers were later suspended.

Lawsuits against the county filed by the father of Brewer's one-year-old son, Innocent Demesyeux, and five-year-old son, Michael Demesyeux, were settled for $250,000.

A lawsuit filed by the father of Brewer's six-year-old daughter, Jewell Ward, was recently settled for $100,000.

I'll have to look her up, Meg.

I never heard of her.

It is. Thank you I added it to the OP, with credit to you.

Reading the story at your recommendation, it sounds like a big insurance scam to me.

Where did the $350,000.00 come from

Great minds think alike!

I just added it to the OP. I guess this will be moved there now.

No wonder you remembered her! It was your post

I thought her picture looked familiar, but, I couldn't figure out from where.

I read so many articles sometimes I get them mixed up but the details sounded too much alike. No wonder!

Where did the $350,000.00 come from
$350k came when fathers sued county for failing to protect the children that were in the mother's custody.

Quote:
The money comes from lawsuits the fathers settled with Nassau County over claims that social services workers failed to properly monitor Brewer.

Quote:
Lawsuits against the county filed by the father of Brewer's one-year-old son, Innocent Demesyeux, and five-year-old son, Michael Demesyeux, were settled for $250,000 ($125k for each child).

A lawsuit filed by the father of Brewer's six-year-old daughter, Jewell Ward, was recently settled for $100,000.

What to do with the money?

How about we make sure the woman is unable to conceive any more children, please?

(I bet neither the fathers nor the mother were thinking of using any money for that, huh?)

The judge has scheduled a hearing on the matter on November 6.
So, if neither the mother nor the fathers are entitled to collect the money from the estates of the three dead children, then the money may be redirected to pay for the mother's psychiatry bills (doctors and hospitals) and also for the support and welfare of the newborn.

Where in the world would the county get the inspiration to ask Mr. Demesyux for help to place the new baby up for adoption? Could the county be inspired by their obligation to protect his parental rights and responsibilities that might have been established by a paternity test ordered by a judge? Maybe.

Ofc Mr. Demesyux could just sign papers relinquishing his parental rights, but that might make the news, no? His current gf, fiance, wife might get wind of that story, huh? So his lawyer throws out a "red herring", saying something inflammatory to deflect attention away from his client and direct attention to what responsibility the county might have in the conception of the new child (maybe).

Keep blaming the women..... (but don't stop impregnating them.)
