TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - The trial for a Tucson woman accused of killing her two young children has been scheduled for February 2014.

The Arizona Daily Star reports that a status hearing in the case is set for April 15.

Pima County prosecutors say they are seeking the death penalty. They say the 26-year-old Perla Morales qualifies for the death penalty because she shot multiple victims and both were under 15.

Police say Morales told them she shot 17-month-old Richard Rosovich Jr. and 4-year-old Emma Rosovich several times after her boyfriend threatened to leave her last Aug. 11.

Morales called 911 and told the dispatcher she needed an ambulance because her children were dead.

When the dispatcher called back, Morales told the dispatcher she had shot her kids and cut her wrists.
