I hope you live with pain and shame and guilt for the rest your life.”
Edens shot and killed her husband’s girlfriend, and her body was found behind the wheel her car in a parking garage. She then shot both her children, ages 5 and 9, in the head before she turned the gun on herself. They were found locked inside the woman’s jeep with the engine still running.
