ELKHART COUNTY – The Elkhart County Prosecutor Curtis Hill is seeking life without parole for the woman accused of killing her two children.
Amber Pasztor, 29, is charged with two counts of murder. Police say she smothered 7-year-old Liliana Hernandez and 6-year-old Rene Pasztor to death. It’s considered an enhanced sentence.
Indiana law says life without parole can be sought if the murder victim was under the age of 12.
Pasztor admitted to killing her two children and another man during an interview with WANE-TV, but, she entered an initial “not guilty” plea in court.
The press release, which is below, doesn’t mention the death penalty. Hill had been considering pursuing the death penalty in Pasztor’s case.
She will be back in court on Oct. 27.
