Indiana mother who killed 2 children faces new murder charge

A prosecutor has filed a new murder charge against an IN woman who pleaded guilty to fatally smothering her two children.

Amber Pasztor is now charged with the shooting death of her neighbor 66-year-old Frank Macomber.

WOWO reports that his body was was found in the woods near his home, where police say she shot him and stole his auto on the same day she kidnapped and killed 7-year-old Liliana Hernandez and 6-year-old Rene Pasztor. Their bodies were found later that evening in the backseat behind the Elkhart Police Department after Pasztor stopped and notified a passing officer of their deaths. She pleaded guilty to their murders last month after a mental competency tests demed her fit to stand trial.

The Elkhart County prosecutor's office said Pasztor agreed to a sentence of 130 years in that case - 65 years on each count of murder to be served consecutively. Pasztor had flagged down an officer and showed him the bodies. She underwent three psychological evaluations to determine whether she was able to assist with her defense.

An Amber Alert was issued for the children in September 2016 after Pasztor took them from their father's home. She allegedly told police where his body could be found.

Pasztor told police she killed Macomber to "send a message to the "cartels" not to mess with her", according to court documents.

After reportedly suffocating her children, she drove to the Elkhart Police Department. She allegedly told police that she shot Macomber, 66, with a large deer hunting rifle that he had bought for her, and she gave them directions to a spot behind her father's home where she had buried Macomber under a tent that the two had bought that day, September 25.

"The defendant stated she knew [Macomber] was working with them (the cartels) because he had a shovel and wires", investigators wrote in the affidavit.

That killing has never been solved.
