Kuwait Times - - INTERNATIONAL -

DAR­LING­TON, In­di­ana: A cen­tral In­di­ana wo­man killed her two young chil­dren and then stabbed her­self in the neck a day af­ter her hus­band filed for di­vorce, a sher­iff said Thurs­day. Brandi Wor­ley, 30, of Dar­ling­ton, con­fessed in a “mat­ter-of­fact” de­meanor to the killings in a 911 call about 4:30 a.m., Mont­gomery County Sher­iff Mark Casteel said.

A deputy found 7-year-old Tyler Wor­ley and 3-year-old Char­lie Wor­ley dead in a bed­room, Casteel said. No in­for­ma­tion has been re­leased on how they died. An au­topsy is sched­uled. Their fa­ther, Ja­son Wor­ley, was asleep in the base­ment, un­aware of what was hap­pen­ing in the home about 40 miles north­west of Indianapolis, the sher­iff said. “I can’t imag­ine the pain or the grief that these fam­i­lies are feel­ing,” Casteel said dur­ing a news con­fer­ence. “Please keep these fam­i­lies in your thoughts and prayers.”

A hos­pi­tal is treat­ing Wor­ley for in­juries to her neck. The sher­iff’s de­part­ment had not been called to the home be­fore, Casteel said. On­line court records show Wor­ley has no prior crim­i­nal his­tory. Di­vorce pa­pers were filed in Mont­gomery County on Wed­nes­day. Yel­low po­lice tape sur­rounded the home Thurs­day morn­ing. Deputies were seen re­mov­ing items from a mini­van in the drive­way. Tyler was a first grade stu­dent at Sugar Creek El­e­men­tary, and Char­lie was en­rolled in preschool.

DAR­LING­TON, In­di­ana: Mont­gomery County Sher­iff’s deputies re­move items from a mini­van dur­ing a dou­ble homi­cide in­ves­ti­ga­tion in the 200 block of Madi­son Street on Thurs­day.
