MONTGOMERY COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) — The Montgomery County mother accused of killing her children earlier this month has pleaded not guilty to two counts of murder.

An initial hearing was held Tuesday morning for 30-year-old Brandi Worley, according to court records. She appeared by video from the Montgomery County Jail, where she was booked Monday.

According to court documents, Worley admitted to stabbing her 3-year-old daughter Charlee and 7-year-old son Tyler on Nov. 17 at their home in Darlington — a day after her husband filed for divorce.

According to police, in a 911 call Worley said, “I just stabbed myself and killed my two children.”

A jury trial is set for April 11, 2017.
