(Scroll down for video) A family was left shattered after their two young kids were shot to death by their own grandmother.
Debra Dennison, 47, of Connecticut, picked up her daughter’s children, Alton Perry, 2, and Ashton Perry, 6 months old, from their day care in Preston.
She was supposed to take them to a birthday party, but instead shot and killed them before turning the gun on herself.
Dennison and her daughter Brenda Perry, who is the children’s mother, had a difficult relationship for a long time, but they have recently reconciled.
According to a police report, Dennison left a suicide note to her daughter and her husband, saying that they do not deserve children.
Dennison allegedly had attempted suicide six times in the last 20 years and suffered from dissociative identity disorder.
Relatives told police that Dennison was disturbed by a letter she received one month before the murder from her son, who is serving a prison sentence of 32 years for murder.
