TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - Police say the Tampa woman accused of killing her two teenagers showed signs of drug impairment following a November car crash.
Julie Powers Schenecker struck a vehicle towing a trailer. A Florida Highway Patrol report released Monday said Schenecker had dilated pupils with no reaction to light and "mush-mouthed speech."
Officers didn't do a field sobriety test because she was taken to the hospital. When officers went to the hospital to obtain a blood sample, Schenecker had already checked out.
She was charged with careless driving.
Police allege Schenecker fatally shot her 16-year-old daughter and 13-year-old son last week. She told detectives they were being "mouthy."
Schenecker appeared in court Monday on two counts of first-degree murder.
