Tyler, 7, and Charlee, 3, were found dead in a bedroom, stabbed to death by their mother
A Montgomery County, Indiana mother killed her two children and stabbed herself in the neck before calling 911 to confess, early Thursday, according to police.
Brandi Worley, 30, admitted to a dispatcher that she had attacked her 7-year-old son Tyler and 3-year-old daughter Charlee, the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office said.
Sheriff Mark Casteel said that the 30-year-old had a “matter-of-fact” and unremorseful manner when she said “I just stabbed myself and killed my two children.”
The children’s father Jason Worley, who filed for divorce on Wednesday, was asleep in the basement of the home, where the children were discovered dead in a bedroom.
Brandi Worley was transported to IU Health Methodist Hospital for self-inflicted stab wounds to her neck. She has not yet been transported to jail.
A cause of death for the children has not been released, and autopsies are scheduled for Friday.
Sugar Creek Elementary, where Tyler was in first grade, said that counselors would be available for students.
