Grandmother identified after daughter kills her & two small children following custody loss: Police

A Texas grandmother shot and killed inside a bedroom last week has been identified.

As CrimeOnline previously reported, the father of two children, ages 3 and 5, showed up at his ex-wife’s Sedona Ranch apartment off of Henderson Pass in San Antonio on April 27 and peered through the blinds after he couldn’t reach her by phone. He immediately called 911 after seeing a ghastly scene inside the apartment.

San Antonio Police Chief William McManus said that the woman shot her two children and her 68-year-old mother, identified as Galina Taypina. The woman, identified as 37-year-old Karina Klebernova Sornoza Deitering, didn’t have a history of violence, according to her husband.

Deitering is accused of shooting the children and her mother in separate bedrooms.

The children’s father told police that he had been trying to make contact with Deitering for a while before he went over to the apartment to check on his children.

“She recently lost custody. Very recently lost custody of the two children,” McManus said during a press conference last week. “(She) killed both children, her mother and then herself.”

The story continues to develop. Check back for updates.
