A Texas mother is accused of shooting her two young daughters while they slept and then telling her husband, “Babe, I shot the kids.” Sarah Henderson, 29, was arrested on Thursday after she allegedly shot her two daughters, Kaylee Danielle, 7, and Kenlie, 5, as they slept on the couch in their home.
Jacob Henderson, the step-father of the young girls, called police on Wednesday at 11:30 p.m. to report that his wife was possibly suicidal, CBS News reported.
Just three hours later, Jacob Henderson called the police again telling them that his wife had shot her two children, reports said.
Sarah could be heard in the background during the call saying, “God what did I do?” according to reports.
Police said the mother also tried shooting her husband but the gun jammed.
“The gun malfunctioned. He took the pistol then realized the daughters had been shot. 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,” Henderson County Sheriff Botie Hillhouse told ABC News.
Sarah is now charged with capital murder and more charges are pending, reports said.
