Prosecutors are no longer seeking the death penalty for a Gert Town mother accused of killing her two young children.
Chelsea Thornton is still scheduled to stand trial in August for the deaths of the three and four-year-old children in 2012. Prosecutors say the 28-year-old has a history of mental illness.
Police say she described her actions as mercy killings.
