Florida mom stabs kids, kills two

A Palm Bay, Florida woman is accused of stabbing her children.

PALM BAY, Florida (CNN) – A Florida mother is accused of stabbing her three children, killing two of them.

Palm Bay police received a call Friday night that Jessica McCarty was attacking her kids. When officers arrived, McCarty was standing in her yard holding a knife.

Authorities then found a 6 and 7-year-old dead and a 5-month-old seriously injured.

Neighbors Brad Cleary was shaken by what happened.

“It is gut wrenching. It is just gut wrenching to me. I think the most horrible thing about it is they are kids, and that will probably tear this neighborhood up,” Cleary said.

Police fired bean bag rounds at McCarty and then took her into custody.

She is scheduled to appear in court Monday.
