A Texas woman shot her two daughters early Thursday morning. Her husband called the police at 911 when she showed suicidal behavior.
29 year old Sarah Nicole Henderson was arrested on thursday after her husband found her two daughter aged 5 and 7 years dead called 911, the AP reports. ‘Nicole confessed killing her children and her husband,’ County Sheriff Botie Hillhouse told the AP. Jacob Henderson happens to be the children’s step-father.
“She did try to shoot her husband. The gun malfunctioned. He took the pistol then realized the daughters had been shot,” Hillhouse told AP. “We don’t have a motive at all. We’re still digging, trying to figure out what was going on at that house at the time.”
The series of such events began late Wednesday night. Jacob called 911 the first time at where the Deputies made a visit the house. The couple said things were going well. At 2:24 AM, Jacob made his second call to 911 in agony. He told that his wife had shot her daughters.
“She was asleep when I went to sleep last night. I woke up and she came in there said, ‘Babe, I just shot the kids.’ And I didn’t want to believe it. I went in there and they were dead.” These were Jacob’s word during the panic call to 911.
Sarah Henderson has been charged with one count of capital murder. Other charges are yet to be defined. She is currently held at Henderson County Jail.
