Arizona Mom Kills Two Children

A 25 year old mother has shot and killed her two children in Arizona. Prosecution hopes to be able to pursue the death penalty. Perla Morales, from Tuscon, had a fight with her boyfriend during which he threatened to leave her.

She then shot her two children,  Richard Rosovich Jr., 17 months, and Emma Rosovich, 4, and then herself. She called 911 and is on record as asking for a police cruiser as “both my kids are dead.”

She was taken by ambulance to the emergency where her wounds were described as non life threatening and she was released into police custody and charged with two counts of homicide.
