Mom Gets Two Life Terms

Mom Gets Two Life Terms [PHOTO & VIDEO], Kelli Lynn Murphy of Castle Rock, Colorado was convicted on four counts of first-degree murder after smothering her two children.

The 43-year-old faced charges of first-degree murder after deliberation, and first-degree murder of a victim under 12 by a person in a position of trust.

In May 2011, Murphy smothered daughter Madigan, 6, and son Liam, 9, in an attempt to get revenge over her husband’s filing for divorce, San Francisco Chronicle reports.

“Although nothing can make up for the loss of Liam and Madigan or fill the void that is left by their absence, we are thankful that this chapter is now over, and we look to God to help lighten our hearts,” the grieving family wrote in their statement. Go here for more including photo and video.
