More than a year after police say Brandi Worley stabbed her two young children to death, she reportedly confessed to the crime in court last week.
According to People, the 31-year-old Indiana mother pleaded guilty to two counts of murder for the Nov. 17, 2016 deaths of 7-year-old Tyler Worley and 3-year-old Charlee Worley.
Brandi Worley reportedly called 911 early on the morning of the homicides and, in a matter-of-fact tone, told the dispatcher that she stabbed herself and her children.
“There’s blood everywhere,” she said.
When the dispatcher asked what prompted the violence, she expressed concern that she would lose custody of them.
“My husband wanted a divorce and wanted to take my kids,” she said.
Records indicate Jason Worley, the children’s father, did file for divorce the day before their deaths.
He was at home at the time of the homicides, Montgomery County Sheriff Mark Casteel confirmed, but was sleeping in the basement and was not aware of the violence.
After Brandi Worley pleaded guilty, Jason Worley said her testimony was just as devoid of emotion as her initial account of the crimes.
“She appeared to be just as unremorseful as she did in the 911 call,” he said. “She spoke in a very matter-of-fact manner when describing her crime. It was heart-wrenching to hear her speak as she did.”
The Indy Star reported that Brandi Worley initially pleaded not guilty with expected plans to argue an insanity defense.
At this point, he said he just hopes to once and for all be rid of the woman who killed his children.
“All I want and have ever wanted was to have her out of sight and mind so that I may move forward from this horror,” Jason Worley said.
