On Monday, a Montgomery County Circuit Court Judge sentenced 31-year-old Brandi Worley to 120 years in prison for the murder of her two children. The judge kept silent for almost 5 minutes before communicating the court sentence to the Darlington woman.
Darlington Woman Slew Her Children and Attempted to Commit Suicide
According to the court documents, the events that would lead to the Darlington woman butchering her own children began in early November 2016, when Brandi Worley was diagnosed with depression and, as per her lawyer’s statement, felling unemotional.
The Worleys have been engaged for two years before they got married. Soon, little Tyler was born and then Charlene. After their children were born, the couple made a promise – that whatever happens between them, their children were a top priority.
Very soon, the couple would have several outfalls, culminating with Jason Worley, Brandi’s husband filing for divorce and custody. The woman appeared to take well the news of the divorce, with no one imagining that she could be capable enough to vent her fury by killing the children.
Jason told the court that he will never forget the 17th of November and that what he heard and seen that day will haunt him for the rest of his life. That day, the couple took the children to have dinner. Jason went ahead and took the children home, while the Darlington mother went shopping under the pretense of wanting to buy a couple of pipe cleaner for 7-year-old Tyler’s class.
According to the prosecution, the woman went to buy a hunting knife, the very weapon she will later use to butcher her children. Upon returning home, the man went to sleep in the basement, while the Darlington mother bathed the children before bed.
At one point, the woman asked Tyler to go her sister’s Charlee in order to have a slumber party. The woman locked herself inside the bedroom and stabbed both children to death.
The bodies were discovered by Jason’s mother-in-law. Jason only recalls being awakened in the dead of night by blood-curdling screams, hearing the police talking over the radio about his two dead children, and someone telling him that his wife planned to kill herself after committing the deed.
