Indiana mom sentenced to 130-years for smothering her 2 children

Posted: Updated:

ELKHART, Ind. (WDRB) --  A judge has ordered an Indiana woman who confessed to fatally smothering her two children to undergo mental health treatment before she goes to prison. 

An Elkhart County judge ordered a 130-year sentence Thursday for 30-year-old Amber Pasztor of Fort Wayne.  Pasztor admits to killing 7-year-old Lilliana Hernandez and 6-year-old Rene Pasztor. She pleaded guilty but mentally ill to two murder counts.

Pasztor abducted her children September 26, 2016 from their custodial grandparents' home, prompting an Amber Alert. Their bodies were found the same day inside a car in Elkhart, about 70 miles northwest of Fort Wayne.

Pasztor is also charged in the September shooting death of a former neighbor, 66-year-old Frank Macomber. Her children's bodies were found inside his stolen car.
