A detective interviewing a Kentucky woman accused of murdering her two young sons, ages 6 and 9, by shooting the children in the head at their Shepherdsville home said in court Tuesday that the suspect claimed to have accidentally fired four shots in 30 seconds.

Tiffanie Ann Katherine Lucas, a 32-year-old from Bullitt County, is accused of murdering Maurice “Peanut” Baker Jr. and Jayden Howard in a bedroom last Wednesday, November 8th. The next day, Lucas was arraigned by video without an attorney present. A judge entered a not guilty plea on Lucas’ behalf and jailed her at the Bullitt County Detention Center on $2 million bail.

On Tuesday, Lucas appeared to have legal representation for an in-person hearing where Bullitt County Detective Richard Beahl discussed what the suspect allegedly told him about the shooting.
