Woman Who Killed Daughters Gets Prison

May 27, 2005|From Times Wire Reports

A woman who shot her two daughters in an abandoned quarry and then led police to the bodies pleaded guilty to murder in Stevenson in a deal with prosecutors that is to send her to prison for 63 years.

Charlene Dorcy, 39, killed the girls, 2 and 4, with a rifle last June in the Gifford Pinchot National Forest.

Dorcy had stopped taking medication for paranoid schizophrenia in favor of herbal remedies because of concern about side effects, her husband said.
