McCandless Mom Drowned Her Two Sons Because She Believed They Had Autism And Would Be ‘Better Off In Heaven’

Pittsburgh mom sentenced to life imprisonment for drowning two sons in bathtub.

A mom from Pittsburgh has been sentenced to 30 to 80 years in prison for drowning his two sons, aged three and six, in a bathtub.

In April 2014, Laurel Schlemmer, 44, got her two sons, Luke and Daniel, out of their superhero pajamas before getting into the bathtub with them, as reported by Mirror. She then held them under water until they stopped moving.

“They got in the bathtub and, um, these crazy voices were prompting me to act irrationally.”
