Kelli Murphy, a 43 year-old mother of two children turned herself in after a failed suicide attempt. She killed her 6 year-old and 9 year-old but claimed that she had blacked out from the vodka and sleeping pills. But it became very clear that she wanted to kill her children because she was losing the custody battle with her ex-husband. In her defence she argued that she did not know what she had done at the time, but a medical expert said it would have been impossible for her to kill her children if she had blacked out.
After the six-day trial Kelli was convicted of first degree murder, she looked upset and guilty as the judge sentenced her out of the court room.
