Susan Smith took nine days to confess to the drownings of her two children after faking a carjacking in Union, S.C.; today a grand jury deliberated less than three hours before indicting her on murder charges in connection with the incident. Smith, 23, was officially accused of pushing her car down a boat ramp into John D. Long Lake on October 25 while her kids, 3-year-old Michael and 14-month-old Alex, plunged to their deaths while strapped in their car seats. Prosecutors haven't decided whether to seek the death penalty. Smith's lawyer, David Bruck, said today that his client was in mourning over the death of her children. "I think it's fair to say that the full horror of what has happened is bearing down on her now," Bruck said.Post your opinion on theCrimebulletin board.
