Connecticut woman charged with killing kids heads to trial

February 13, 2019 - 6:55 AM

NEW HAVEN, Conn. - The murder trial of a Connecticut woman charged with killing her two children in 2015 is getting underway.

The New Haven Register reports that LeRoya Moore is scheduled to go on trial Wednesday.

The 39-year-old East Haven woman has been held on $2 million bail since she was arrested June 10, 2015, eight days after her children were found dead in the family's home.

Autopsies determined that 6-year-old Aleisha Moore and 7-year-old Daaron Moore died from acute intoxication of an antihistamine found in over-the-counter medications.

Police say they also found a note written by Moore that said "I don't know the reason why, but we were meant to die today."

Moore's current public defenders declined to comment on the case, but a previous public defender said an insanity defence was planned.
