JJ and his nonbinary sibling Jasmine were both shot dead by their mother. She then called 911 and waited for the police to arrive.

AMBRIDGE, Pa. — A woman has been charged with shooting her two children to death inside an Ambridge home on Monday.

Ambridge police said the incident occurred in the 900 block of Maplewood Avenue around 1:30 p.m.

Inside the home, police found the children dead. They were identified as 16-year-old Jeffrey Bright and 22-year-old Jasmine Cannady.

The mother, 48-year-old Krisinda Bright, was arrested for the shooting, according to Interim Chief John Deluca. She was the one who actually called 911.

According to a criminal complaint, Bright told 911 dispatchers that she shot her children and left the gun unloaded on the dining room table.

Bright is charged with two counts of homicide and was taken to the Beaver County Jail without bond, according to the Beaver County District Attorney’s Office.

In December 2021 Krisinda Ann Bright, 58, was given a life sentence with no possibility of parole.

A Pennsylvania mother who killed her trans and nonbinary children with a shotgun has been slapped with a life sentence with no chance of parole for her crimes on Wednesday, Dec. 15, after she agreed to a plea deal with prosecutors, narrowly avoiding the death penalty.

Fifty-eight-year-old Krisinda Ann Bright from Ambridge, Pennsylvania, who murdered her 16-year-old transgender son Jeffrey “JJ” Bright and 22-year-old Jasmine Cannady on Feb. 23, originally pleaded not guilty to the charges of a double homicide that were filed against her by prosecutors and the state, according to a previous article.

However, Bright has since agreed to plead guilty to the ra[s in exchange for a life sentence, as prosecutors at the time were pursuing the death penalty against her. Beaver County District Attorney David Lozier believes that this is the best for everyone involved, The Times reported.
