A woman hangs two kids

An average middle aged woman of 37, Lisa Snyder has been charged with first and third degree murder after her kids were found dead in the basement of her home.

The woman from Pennsylvania is charged with first degree murder in December 2019, following a lengthy investigation.

It was alleged the day of the incident; Lisa called 911 on September 23, 2019, saying she had discovered her children, four year old Brimley (girl) and eight yer old Conner Snyder hanged at home.

The Ambulance team sent to her Albany Township home arrived to find the children irresponsive. According to a 911 call recording, Lisa told the Paramedics that Conner had been threatening to take his own life because he was bullied and told her that he was afraid to die alone. Both children died on September 26th at Lehigh Valley Hospital Cedar Crest after being taken off life support.

During Police investigations, explicit materials were uncovered showing Lisa having sex with the family dog.

Lisa was also charged with tampering with evidence, endangering the welfare of children, animal cruelty and sexual intercourse with a dog. 

At Lisa’s preliminary hearing, Chief Deputy District Attorney, Margaret McCallum argued that Lisa’s version of her children’s death did not make sense:

“Conner was not capable of doing this to himself. He was not capable of doing this to his sister.” McCallum said.

However, her defense lawyers have filed in papers suggesting they intend to put forward the insanity defense. Paper filed at Berks County Court cited a number of mental health conditions which will be raised when Lisa goes to trial.

Lisa defense team have also requested a separate trial relating to charges bestiality and cruelty to animal as it may ‘unfairly prejudiced’ the jury in the murder case.

According to globintel, the father of the children did not live with the family. A 17-year-old boy also lived in the house but he was not involved with the crime, Adams added.

The teenager is now staying with other family and the victimized dog had already been given away to a Facebook friend of the suspect’s before Monday’s arrest, Pennsylvania State Police Trooper David Beohm said.
