A judge has ordered a mentally ill Indiana woman to undergo treatment before she serves a 130-year sentence for smothering her two children to death.
Amber Pasztor, 30, told an Elkhart County judge she was sorry as she pleaded guilty to two counts of murder in the deaths of 7-year-old Liliana Hernandez and 6-year-old Rene Pasztor.
On Sept. 26, Pasztor took her children from their custodial grandparents’ home near Fort Wayne, prompting police to issue an Amber Alert.
She smothered them inside a stolen car, and later showed their bodies to police.
Police had issued an Amber Alert earlier in the day for siblings Liliana Hernandez and Rene Pasztor, saying they were “believed to be in extreme danger.”
And on June 27, cops said they found the body of a man they believe was an acquaintance of the children’s mother.
In an interview with a local TV station WANE-TV, Amber Pasztor admitted first time that she killed her children.
After kidnapping her children during a custody dispute, she said, the issuance of the Amber Alert seeking the children triggered her urge to smother them to death.
On learning that police were in search of the children, Pasztor said she gave her two kids a choice after learning an emergency alert: “They can live traumatized lives, like their mom, or they can go to heaven with God and be better off,” Pasztor told WANE-TV.
re counted killing her daughter, Liliana, 7, first, before suffocating little Rene, 6, during the interview.

She told police she did it to “keep them safe” and “usher them onto heaven,” Fox59 reported.
“I do believe you’re sorry,” Judge Michael Christofeno told Pasztor. “But that unfortunately does not undo this horrific act,” he said.
The judge ruled that Pasztor, who is bipolar and schizophrenic, was competent to stand trial.
Pasztor is also charged in the fatal September shooting of former neighbor, 66-year-old Frank Macomber, whose car Pasztor’s children’s bodies were found in.
Police were searching for 66-year-old Frank Macomber, who they believe was with Amber Pasztor on June 26, 2016,  the day she killed her children, when they found his body a day later in a wooded area near his Fort Wayne home.

Admitting both kids fought back “a little bit,” the killer mom said: “He [Rene] wanted to go with her,” Pasztor said, rocking back and forth slightly.
“My kids are in a better place. They’re in heaven now,” she added. “They don’t have no worries no more.”
Judge Christofeno said the defendant’s pattern of alcohol consumption, marijuana and synthetic marijuana use factored into his sentencing decision.

Defense lawyer Peter Soldato said his client’s substance use, combined with her mental illness, led her to smother her children to death.
“Essentially, she poisoned herself over the course of two years,” Soldato said.
Pasztor will receive mental health treatment as part of her plea agreement.
