A 29-year-old mother was arrested for shooting her two daughters, aged 5 and 7, to death while they were asleep. Sarah Nicole Henderson, a woman from Texas, had planned the killing for weeks. Moreover, she intended to kill herself and her husband Jacob Henderson, who is the girls’ stepfather, deputies say adding “but the entire crime did not go as planned.”
Police arrived on the scene following Jacob Henderson’s call, reporting the girls’ death. Jacob told investigators that when he woke up that morning his wife had said, “Babe, I just shot the kids.” He provided more details to police saying he found the girls in their beds, fatally shot in the head. Currently, Sarah Nicole Henderson is charged with two counts of capital murder, as announced by authorities.
According to police records, Sarah Nicole Henderson has made a confession to the killings saying she also planned to kill herself and her husband. As a matter of fact, Sarah Nicole Henderson made an attempt to shoot her husband, but, fortunately, she failed because the gun didn’t function properly. Moving forward, she had been heard asking Jacob to shoot her, because she believed that people were after her. “God, forgive me,” “What did I do, Lord? What did I do,” are Sarah’s words after the bloody act of murder.
