The murders are thought to have taken place Thursday evening.Police arrested the mom Julie on Friday when they discovered her amidst the grisly scene cowering on the back porch of her home,…clad only in slippers and a bloody robe!!!(Huffington Post)
Police were called to the house after Schenecker’s mother called from Texas to express concern about her daughter’s welfare, saying she was depressed, a police statement said.(CNN)
She is charged with two counts of first degree murder, and has told the police that she premeditated the killings.(Source)
She stated that she had gotten tired of dealing with her ‘back-talking’ ,’mouthy’, disrespectful teenagers, and just wanted them dead.
…obviously that was an over reaction if it were actually the case…I think that her problem is that she snapped mentally, and she is probably insane….
Police said they had contacted the husband in Qatar Friday and told him his children had been killed…by his wife!!!
…She is seriously disturbed, and needs a lot of mental help!…what do you think should happen to her?
