FAIRFIELD, Calif. —
A Fairfield mom convicted of murdering her twin toddler daughters has been sentenced to two life terms in prison without the possibility of parole.
The Reporter of Vacaville reports that a tearful Monica McCarrick told a Solano County court she was sorry and loved her daughters before she was sentenced on Monday.
A jury convicted the 29-year-old McCarrick in June of two counts of first-degree murder in the 2010 deaths of her daughters, Tori and Lily Ball, both 3 years old. It later found her sane.
Authorities say McCarrick stabbed the girls with a samurai sword before attempting to take her own life and set fire to her apartment.
McCarrick's attorney said her client was suffering paranoid delusions and believed her children were going to be enslaved and raped.
Prosecutors told jurors McCarrick's use of methamphetamine was to blame.
