Father of slain children speaks at Relay for Life

Tampa, Florida - This year's Relay for Life event at King High School at 6815 N. 56th Street was dedicated to Calyx and Beau Schenecker of New Tampa. Police say the children were murdered and that their mother Julie confessed to killing them in January.


Julie Schenecker, 50, told investigators that she planned and carried out the shooting deaths of her 16-year-old daughter, Calyx, and 13-year-old son, Beau, because they talked back and were "mouthy." Her husband, a military intelligence officer, was on duty in the Middle East at the time.
