Police say Florida mother was angry at teens for "talking back".

A Tampa, Florida woman accused of killing her two teenaged children has been ordered held without bail.

50-year-old Julie Powers Schenecker made her first court appearance on Monday.

Police say Schenecker shot her 13-year-old son Beau in the head twice "for talking back" as they drove home Thursday evening.

They believe Schenecker then drove home and shot her 16-year-old daughter Calyx in the face while the girl was doing homework at a computer.

Officers found Schenecker covered in blood Friday morning after her mother called police saying she was concerned.

Schenecker's husband is a colonel in the U.S. Army and is serving in the Middle East.
