The woman who authorities say killed her teenage daughter and son because she was fed up with them talking back and being mouthy will not appear in court Saturday because she's being treated at a hospital for an unknown condition.
Authorities say Julie Powers Schenecker was taken to Tampa General Hospital shortly after midnight Saturday to be treated for a medical condition that existed before she was taken to jail. Hillsborough Sheriff's deputies who oversee jail inmates said they could not reveal Schenecker's medical condition, citing health care privacy laws.
An arrest affidavit said Schenecker shot her son twice in the head in the family car "for talking back" as she drove him to soccer practice. The report said Schenecker then drove to their upscale home and shot her daughter in the face inside the home.
Schenecker's mother called police Friday morning and told them she was concerned after her daughter had sent an e-mail saying she was depressed. Officers found Schenecker drenched in blood on her back porch and after they saw the teens, the scene was so troubling that a stress team was called to counsel the responding officers, a police spokeswoman said.
Calyx, the girl, was 16 and a cross-country running star at her high school. The 13-year-old son, Beau, was in eighth grade.
Schenecker's husband, Parker Schenecker, is a career Army officer attached to U.S. Central Command in Tampa. He was working in the Middle East when the shootings happened.

Guess I was lucky. My Parents just knocked me on my ass when I got mouthy.
She looks like Sarah Jessica Parker.
Totally guilty. Inject her
God, what a ugly raving lunatic.
Prayers for the poor kids and her husband.
My screen must be mess up. That woman looks 70 to me.
They need to take this bitch out and tie her to a tree then skin her alive.
Good grief. Hopefully CENTCOM assigns this guy a casualty officer for a couple days. If I was his CO, I’m not sure if I’d leave him alone. I sure wouldn’t let him stay in that house by himself.
Palin, what you have you done this time?
Those poor kids, never had a chance with that for a mother.
>> the scene was so troubling that a stress team was called to counsel the responding officers, a police spokeswoman said.
No doubt. The story freaks me out. This is among the worst of crimes - the ultimate betrayal.
I can’t imagine the suffering the father and Grandmother are experiencing.
and then shoot her in the face, but hold the gun there for a while just so she gets to feel what her kids felt when she slaughtered them.
>> My screen must be mess up. That woman looks 70 to me.
That’s a body without a soul.
Was she taking some kind of medication?
I understand a lot of people who suffer from depression, or other mental maladies, get benefits from various psychotropic drugs -- but it also seems that many of these mass murderers (e.g., Columbine) were taking psychotropic medication.
Yes, the mother deserves the death penalty (Genesis 9:6 Whoso sheddeth man's blood, by man shall his blood be shed: for in the image of God made he man.), but I have to feel for all involved with mental illnesses - the sick person, as well as their family. No one really knows how to treat the ailment. They throw various drugs at it - and they adjust the doses and treatment based on trial and error responses. Some are successfully treated ... others end up killing themselves, or worse... Just very sad.
inject the psycho bitch. But of course,,,,you know they won’t. After all, she was “depressed”.
Just wait,,,it’ll be a few years, but we’ll eventually be treated to an exclusive interview from prison someday where she says shes soooooooo sorry,,,, blah blah blah,,,
Ah, yes... 50th or 60th trimester terminations... Didn’t a famous person recently say, “Government should not intrude on private family matters?”
No one just snaps like this - there is either a brain injury, or drugs of some sort involved. She looks awful. She’ll want to die once she’s aware of what she’s done. (This doesn’t mean she’s not accountable for her actions, but there has to be more to it)
Please don’t feel sorry for these people, they know what they’re doing.
And the press will blame the husband.
