TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) — An Arizona woman accused of fatally shooting her twin 8-year-old autistic grandsons seven months ago has pleaded guilty to two counts of manslaughter.
The Arizona Daily Star reports 56-year-old Dorothy Flood accepted a plea deal Monday and will be sentenced Jan. 27.
Flood was indicted on two counts of first-degree murder in the deaths of Jaden and Jorden Webb.
The twins were found shot multiple times inside a northwest Tucson home on April 4.
Pima County Sheriff’s deputies reported finding a handgun on the kitchen table.
Tucson police say Flood admitted shooting the boys before attempting suicide by overdosing on a prescription medication.
Flood was the boys’ sole caregiver after their mother died in 2017.
Investigators say Flood told a family member the boys had become too much for her.
