Brandi Worley, a 30-year-old mother of two from Indiana, was convicted on Wednesday of murdering her young children in 2016. Brandi stabbed her 7-year-old son Tyler and 3-year-old daughter Charlee to death in their home while her husband was at work. What could have led this young mother to commit such a heinous crime?
Some have speculated that Brandi was experiencing postpartum depression or some other form of mental illness. Others believe that she may have been feeling overwhelmed by the responsibility of caring for two young children. Whatever the case may be, it is clear that Brandi was not in a stable frame of mind when she committed these murders.
It is possible that Brandi was feeling threatened by the impending divorce from her husband. The couple had been discussing separation in the past, and Jason had even filed for divorce just two days before the murders took place. Brandi may have felt that she was about to lose everything that was important to her, and decided to take matters into her own hands.
