Chicago mom says Devil told her to kill children

She said the Devil made her do it — and this week, a forensic psychiatrist, basically agreed.
In testimony this week, Dr. Phillip Resnick said that Elzbieta Plackowska, on trial for killing two children and two dogs "had a psychotic belief that devils had entered (the children) and that by taking their lives, she was allowing the children to enter heaven."
Resnick added that Plackowska, who has pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity, could not fully understand her criminal actions when she stabbed her son, Justin, plus a playmate Olivia Dworaski and the dogs on October 30, 2012, the Chicago Tribune reports.
Resnick had examined Plackowska for the trial and testified that she claimed she saw a “black shadow” and believed the demon was entering the children. Then the shadow urged Plackowska to “kill them, kill them.”
