CRAWFORDSVILLE, Ind. (AP) — A central Indiana woman has pleaded guilty to two counts of murder in the fatal stabbings of her young children after her husband filed for divorce.
WISH-TV reports 31-year-old Brandi Worley’s plea agreement was accepted Friday in Montgomery Circuit Court. Sentencing is scheduled for March 19.
The Nov. 17, 2016, attack killed 7-year-old Tyler and 3-year-old Charlee Worley. Police said Worley called 911, admitting she just killed her children. First responders found the children dead at the family’s Darlington home about 40 miles northwest of Indianapolis.
Court documents say Worley told police she killed the children because she didn’t want her husband to take them. She also was treated for self-inflicted stab wounds to her neck.
Her husband, Jason Worley, told officers he was asleep downstairs when the attack occurred.
