Owners of St. Rita's Nursing Home plead innocent...

This photo by Eliot Kamenitz of the Times-Picayune shows St. Rita's Nursing Home owners Mabel and Salvador Mangano who pleaded innocent Wednesday to charges in connection with the deaths of 35 residents.

This is another sad reminder of the terrible destruction of Hurricane Katrina. Some of the residents confined to beds or wheelchairs did not have a chance when the one-story building was flooded to the ceiling. The Magano's say they never expected their facility to be flooded.

There will be no winners in this case.
