Trial date set for Tucson mom accused of killing 2
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.
