Julie Schenecker of Florida was arrested for shooting her two children because they talked back.
Tampa police arrested Julie Schenecker Friday on two counts of first-degree murder.
A Tampa police spokesperson told media that Julie Schenecker claims she killed her 13-year-old son Powers Schenecker and 16-year-old daughter Calyx Schenecker because "they were mouthy."
Tampa Police claim they received a call from the concerned mother of Julie Schenecker. Officers arrived on the scene to find Schenecker covered in blood.
In the garage, police found Powers shot in the side of the head. In an upstairs room, Calyx was found dead at a computer. There did not appear to have been a struggle, police said.
"It appears that the children never saw it coming," McElroy said.
Father Parker Schenecker is currently in Qatar serving in the US military.
