A 29-year-old Fort Wayne woman on trial for murdering her two children will try to have a court rule her insane.

The public defenders assigned to Amber Pasztor have filed a notice that they’re seeking the insanity defense, according to 21Alive in Fort Wayne.

Pasztor admitted to Elkhart police she kidnapped 7-year-old Liliana Hernandez and 6-year-old Rene Pasztor on September 26th from their grandparent’s home, drove them to Elkhart, and smothered them.

She also reportedly admitted to murdering Frank Macomber, her neighbor, and stealing his car before kidnapping the children. She has not yet been formally charged in his death.

Elkhart County Prosecutor Curtis Hill is seeking a sentence of life without parole for Pasztor.
