FORT WAYNE, Ind. (AP) - An Indiana woman accused of smothering her two children after abducting them says she decided to kill them after hearing that authorities had issued an Amber Alert.

Amber Pasztor old WANE-TV in a jail interview Monday that she killed the children so they'd be safe in heaven.

Pasztor says 7-year-old Liliana Hernandez and 6-year-old Rene Pasztor were in good hands in her father's custody, but she didn't think they were safe. She says -- in her words -- "My kids are in a better place. They don't have no worries no more."

The 29-year-old Fort Wayne woman is charged with two counts of murder in the Sept. 26 deaths.

Pasztor is also accused of killing her neighbor Frank Macomber and taking his car when she went on the run. She has not been charged in his death.
