    Tucson police: Mother kills 2 children, then shoots herself


    Perla Morales, 25, survived the shooting. She was arrested and booked into the
    Pima County Jail on two counts of first-degree murder after her release from the hospital.

    Those who are "psycho" have absolutely no awareness that they are. If there is mental illness here, she is not to blame though the loss of precious life was the cost.

    I will not make a judgement until the pros do what they must regarding this mother.

    FWIW: There is often mental illness involved when a mother kills her children. Some research shows up to 70% of maternal perpetrators suffer from depression. Far fewer filicides can be clinically labeled as 'psychotic' though.

    I wish there was more awareness about these crimes because very often there are clear warning signs prevalent before the murders.

    Rest in peace little angels.

    From October 2014:


    After three days of emotional testimony in front of heartbroken family members, Perla Caroline Morales was sentenced Thursday to 40 years in prison and probation for life for killing her two children in 2012.

    Although the court appreciates Morales’ difficulties in life and her faltering mental health, it could not conclude that the killing of the two children were the result of a psychotic episode, Pima County Superior Court Judge Jane Eikleberry said at the sentencing hearing...

    She pleaded guilty to second degree murder earlier this year.
