Authorities say Schenecker shot her children, Calyx, 16, and Beau, 13, in the head at their New Tampa home in January 2011. She reportedly told police the kids had been "mouthy."

The defense plans to seek a verdict of not guilty by reason of insanity on the grounds Schenecker suffered from bipolar disorder with psychotic features and didn't know what she was doing or didn't understand that it was wrong.
