Is it the trauma of living in or near Detroit?
TRENTON, Mich. - A custody hearing was held for two of Jennifer Petkov's children. A Wayne County Probate Court judge ruled on an emergency order. Her eight-year-old daughter and five-year-old son from a previous relationship will now move in with their father until further notice.
Petkov made headlines a few days ago after she admitted to taunting the family of 7-year-old Kathleen Edward, who is dying from Huntington's Disease. She posted disturbing photos of Kathleen of Facebook, and her husband Scott Petkov parked a coffin on the street in front of the girl's home.

The father of Petkov's children filed for the emergency hearing right after the story broke.
Meanwhile, ot far from both families' homes, Edward was having her face painted. Today it was a princess party with a real princess and lots of friends and family at West Grange Pharmacy in Trenton.
"People (have) been coming in here today all day long leaving checks, leaving donations and literally crying because they were just so moved by what's going on," said pharmacy owner Rich Grossman.
What's happening is that 20-percent of all toy and gift purchases at the pharmacy Wednesday will be donated to Edward's family for medical expenses as she battles Huntington's disease.
"It was actually kind of a surprise for all of us. We ... got a phone call a few days ago saying ... to come down. They're going to do a benefit here, and we didn't know it was going to be this entailed, but it's great. She's been smiling all day," said Robert Edward, Kathleen's father.
