Jenna’s two sons, both under the age of 10, were with her but were taken outside by Elizabeth prior to the shooting and told to wait in a pickup truck.
The deranged granny researched shootings and purchased a firearm more than two months before the murder, police said.
Jenna, who worked as a kindergarten teacher in Cobb County, filed from divorce from Elizabeth’s son Jerrod in October 2015, saying that their 11-year marriage was “irretrievably broken.”
Jerrod had claimed his wife had an affair and fought for custody of the boys, and he claimed he was denied visitation rights.
Elizabeth had spent time in a mental facility following her arrest, according to Jimmy Berry, her defense attorney, was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole.
“Certainly she was very remorseful about what happened. She’s been very open with me about it,” Berry said.
“I think that’s what caused the shooting, the voices she heard, believing that was the best thing to do. She anticipated she would shoot herself, but ultimately she didn’t.”
