Virginia woman and convicted murderer Veronica Youngblood, 37, was kicked out of court for lashing out during her sentencing hearing for killing her two daughters, Brooklynn Youngblood, 5, and Sharon Castro, 15.

“No no no!” she shouted on Thursday, according to WUSA. Youngblood reportedly kept yelling even as the judge cleared the room.

Jurors in Fairfax County convicted Youngblood on Wednesday for two counts each of first-degree murder and felony firearm use. She fatally shot Brooklynn and Sharon on Aug. 5, 2018 at her apartment in the community of McLean, according to The Washington Post. Brooklynn was shot in the head and died at the scene. Sharon, despite suffering gunshot wounds to her chest and back de ella, managed to call 911 and reveal that her mother de ella shot her. She died at a hospital.

Prosecutors say that at the same time Sharon Castro was calling police, Youngblood left a message for her ex-husband Ron Youngblood, telling him that she shot their children and that she hated him, according to prosecutors at trial.

“The suspect, 33-year-old Veronica Youngblood, was found in Loudoun County after an acquaintance called police when Youngblood knocked on their front door,” Fairfax County police said in 2018.

According to prosecutors, she killed her children to get revenge on her ex, who was planning to move to Missouri with their younger daughter.

“This person wants to manipulate, this person wants to lie, dream chaos, all for this person’s personal gain,” prosecutor Claiborne Richardson reportedly said. “Ms. Youngblood is spiteful, selfish, vengeful and calculated.”
