Children in Hudson River drownings won't be buried with mom

The father of the three children killed in the Hudson River tragedy said in a statement today that he has decided that their funerals should be separate from their mother's funeral.

Jean Pierre said that the children will not be buried with their mother as originally planned.

Pierre's attorney, speaking on his behalf, said the separate service and burials for Landen, Lance and Laianna will be held on Monday.

The funeral for Lashanda Armstrong will still be held tomorrow at the First Baptist Church in Spring Valley.
