(Newser) – Before she allegedly shot her teenage son and daughter in the head for being "mouthy," Julie Schenecker detailed her plans with pen and paper. Referencing Florida's three-day waiting period to take home a firearm, Schenecker chillingly wrote in a note that it would "delay the massacre," reports the St. Petersburg Times. Schenecker has admitted shooting Beau, 13, and Calyx, 16, five days after she bought a .38-caliber handgun. Authorities have yet to identify the gun shop where she made the purchase.
