Police say the Florida woman accused of killing her two teenagers showed signs of drug impairment after a November car crash.
A Florida Highway Patrol report released Monday said Julie Powers Schenecker had dilated pupils with no reaction to light and “mush-mouthed speech” after she hit a vehicle towing a trailer.
Officers didn’t do a field sobriety test because she was taken to the hospital. When officers went to the hospital to obtain a blood sample, Schenecker had already checked out.
She was charged with careless driving.
Schenecker appeared in court Monday on two first-degree murder charges. She is accused of killing 16-year-old Calyx and 13-year-old Beau last Thursday. She was found Friday by police sitting on her back porch, covered in blood.
Police said she told detectives that she shot the children because they were “mouthy.”
