TUCSON, Ariz. — The trial for a Tucson woman accused of killing her two
young children has been scheduled for February 2014.
The Arizona Daily Star reported that a status hearing in
the case is set for April 15.
Pima County prosecutors said they are seeking the death penalty. They said Perla
Morales, 26, qualified for the death penalty because she shot multiple
victims and both were under 15.
Police said Morales told them she shot 17-month-old Richard Rosovich Jr. and
4-year-old Emma Rosovich several times after her boyfriend threatened to leave
her last Aug. 11.
Morales called 911 and told the dispatcher she needed an ambulance because her
children were dead.
When the dispatcher called back, Morales told the dispatcher she had shot her
kids and cut her wrists.
