TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - A judge has granted an immediate divorce to the husband of a Tampa woman accused of killing their two teenage children.
Hillsborough Circuit Court judge gave Army Col. Parker Schenecker the instant divorce Thursday from his wife Julie. The 50-year-old mom is accused of killing their 16-year-old daughter Calyx and 13-year-old son Beau by shooting them in the head in January.
Julie Schenecker's attorneys said she did not oppose it.
Another judge retained jurisdiction over the couple's assets, estimated at $2 million. Another hearing set for Friday on Julie Schenecker's request for release of $200,000 in assets plus about $50,000 for legal expenses was canceled.
The next hearing about the division of assets was set for July 6.
Parker Schenecker has said his wife had been treated for mental illness.
