TAMPA, Fla. - A Florida mother who shot her two teenage children in the head says she knows what she did -- but not why she did it.
Crying as she spoke, Schenecker told the judge and jurors that she would have plenty of time in prison to "try to understand" why she killed her 13-year-old son, Beau, and 16-year-old daughter, Calyx.
The jury delivered its verdict within two hours, agreeing with the prosecution that the 53-year-old former military linguist knew exactly what she was doing when she aimed a .38-caliber handgun loaded with hollow-point bullets at her children's heads.
The defense argued Schenecker was legally insane.
