The San Francisco prosecutor says it's unclear what motivated a 23-year-old woman to allegedly toss her three young children into San Francisco Bay.

The search for the bodies of two children still missing is scheduled to resume this morning.

Lashuan Harris is due in court today, where she'll face three counts each of murder and child abuse leading to death of a child.

Appearing on NBC's "Today" show, District Attorney Kamala Harris says she expects Harris' court-appointed attorney to seek psychological testing.

Kamala Harris says there will be a critical look at the way social services handled the woman's case. She also says the case calls into question how society deals with parents who are incapable of caring for their children.
