Police were called to the family’s home on South Madison Street after Worley called 911 and told the dispatcher, “I just stabbed myself and killed my children.”

Worley’s husband filed for divorce the day before the murder, citing an ‘irretrievable breakdown’ in the marriage. The two had been married since August 2009.
