(FORT WAYNE) - An Evansville woman who admitted to fatally smothering her two children faces 130 years in prison for those killings.

30-year-old Amber Pasztor was scheduled to be sentenced today in Elkhart County for the deaths of 7-year-old Lilliana Hernandez and 6-year-old Rene Pasztor.

Amber pleaded guilty but mentally ill to two murder counts in a plea agreement calling for a 130-year sentence.

Pasztor abducted her children on September 26 from their custodial grandparents' home, prompting an Amber Alert. Their bodies were found the same day inside a stolen car parked behind the Elkhart Police Department, about 70 miles (110 kilometers) northwest of Fort Wayne.

Pasztor is also charged in the September shooting death of a former neighbor, 66-year-old Frank Macomber. Her children's bodies were found inside his stolen car.
