CRAWFORDSVILLE, Ind. (WISH) — A 31-year-old woman charged with the November 2016 murders of her two young children has pleaded guilty and will be sentenced in March, court documents show.

Court documents indicated Brandi Worley told police she used a combat knife to kill the children and stab herself because she didn’t want her husband to take their children, 7-year-old Tyler and 3-year-old Charlee. Tyler was a student at Sugar Creek Elementary in the North Montgomery school district.

According to police, Worley called 911, admitting she just killed her children. Kyle Proctor was the dispatcher who received Worley’s 911 call. “At first, the longer it went and the more detailed she got, you start feeling this is true You hope and pray that it’s not.”
