A young mother who claimed she was sacrificing her young sons for God by tossing them to their deaths in San Francisco Bay was convicted Tuesday of second-degree murder.

LaShuan Harris, 24, claimed she was insane when she drowned the three boys on Oct. 19, 2005. The three murder convictions carry mandatory sentences of 15 years to life in prison.

Harris, who was previously acquitted of first-degree murder, was also convicted last week of three counts of assault of a child causing death.

Killed in the drownings were 6-year-old Trayshawn Harris, 2-year-old Taronta Greeley Jr. and 16-month-old Joshua Greeley.
