(DARLINGTON) - A Darlington mother who police say admitted to killing her two young children so their father couldn't take them away from her back in November, wants to change her not guilty plea to a defense of insanity.

30-year-old Brandi Worley is charged with the murders of her 7-year-old son and 3-year-old daughter.

Police were called to the home on South Madison Street after Worley called 911 and told the dispatcher that she stabbed herself and killed her children.

Worley's lawyer filed a motion on Wednesday for a belated insanity defense. They now have 15 days to complete her mental evaluation and file their defense. Her next court hearing is scheduled for August 7th.
