Thirty-year-old Brandi Worley of Darlington was booked into the Montgomery County Jail Monday and is being held without bond. She had been hospitalized and treated for self-inflicted stab wounds to the neck after the Nov. 17 attack that left her children dead.

She has been charged with murder in the deaths of 7-year-old Tyler and 3-year-old Charlee.

Court documents say Worley told police officers she used a combat knife to kill the children and stab herself because she didn’t want her husband to take the children from her. Her husband, Jason Worley, had filed for divorce.
