FORT WAYNE, Ind. (AP) – An Indiana woman accused of smothering her two children after abducting them says she decided to kill them after hearing that authorities had issued an Amber Alert.
Amber Pasztor old WANE-TV in a jail interview (http://bit.ly/2dLet0t ) Monday that she killed the children so they’d be safe in heaven.
Pasztor says 7-year-old Liliana Hernandez and 6-year-old Rene Pasztor were in good hands in her father’s custody, but she didn’t think they were safe. She says — in her words — “My kids are in a better place. They don’t have no worries no more.”
The 29-year-old Fort Wayne woman is charged with two counts of murder in the Sept. 26 deaths.
Pasztor also told WANE-TV she shot her neighbor and took his car. She hasn’t been charged with Frank Macomber’s death.
