Kaylee Danielle, 7, and Kenlie, 5, were shot in the middle of the night.

Sarah Nicole Henderson woke up her husband in the middle of the night Nov. 2 and made a horrific confession. 

"She was asleep when I went to sleep last night," Jacob Henderson told the 911 dispatcher. "I woke up and she came in there said, 'Babe, I just shot the kids.' And I didn't want to believe it. I went in there and they were dead." 

The mother of 7-year-old Kaylee and 5-year-old Kenlie reportedly told Texas police that she planned for at least two weeks to kill her daughters and husband.  She had also planned to kill herself. 

"She did try to shoot her husband. The gun malfunctioned. He took the pistol then realized the daughters had been shot," Henderson County Sheriff Botie Hillhouse said. "We don't have a motive at all. We're still digging, trying to figure out what was going on at that house at the time."

Police said Jacob Henderson had first called police around 11:30 p.m. Wednesday night seeking medical help for his wife, who he said was suicidal. He told operators that she wouldn't listen to him and that she was "freaking out like someone is out to get her."

A few minutes later, Jacob Henderson called 911 again saying that his wife told him she's fine now and was acting normally. Police still responded to the house at 11:45 p.m., were told by the couple that everything was fine. 

“No one was in any danger. No one was suicidal, no signs of violence, no signs of anything," said Sheriff Hillhouse.

But three hours later, they got another call from Jacob Henderson. This time he said his wife had walked into the living room where her two children were sleeping and shot them both in the head.

"The only thing she told us was that she had smoked some marijuana early in the evening. She was very blunt. We just don’t have any answers as to why,” said Sheriff Hillhouse.

In the 911 call, Sarah Henderson can be heard in the background asking her husband to kill her. At one point, you can hear her yell: "God, what did I do?"

Jacob Henderson is not the biological father of the girls. Their real father has been notified. He has an older son with Sarah Henderson who lives with him. 

Police had been called to the Henderson's house twice before for minor complaints, one in 2015 where a neighbor reported a verbal altercation that ended up being Sarah Henderson having a fight with someone on the phone outside the house. The couple reported a suspicious vehicle in their area a few months after that. 

Neighbors said she had been acting erratically for the last couple of weeks and talked about people being after her. In 2010, Child Protective Services investigated Sarah Henderson but the information is confidential. 

”You just heard her yelling at the kids all the time. Really loud,” said Jaylyne Palmer, a neighbor.

Sarah Henderson was charged with capital murder and another capital murder charge along with other charges are possible. She's currently in jail on suicide watch.
