(Scroll down for video) A married woman killed her mother after she confessed to sleeping with her son-in-law, a court in the United Kingdom heard.

The mother also told her daughter that she was an unwanted child.

56-year-old Susan Edwards and her 57-year-old husband Christopher, are accused of killing her parents and burying their bodies in the backyard of their home in Mansfield. She told the Nottingham Crown Court that she entered a room in her parents’ house after hearing a loud noise.

She said that her father was laying on the floor and her mother was standing with a gun in her hand. Her mother, Patricia Wycherley, threw the gun on a bed and taunted Susan Edwards.

Susan Edwards described how her mother told her that she was an unwanted child and that she and her husband have both wanted her to have an abortion. “I asked her to please stop saying these things. She did not. She went on and on,” Susan said.

Suddenly, her mother told her that she had slept with her husband, Christopher. That is when Susan Edwards grabbed the gun and pulled the trigger several times, killing her mother and father.

Later, she wrapped the gun and bullets in a towel, put it in two plastic bags and dumped it in an empty garbage can. Susan and her husband buried the bodies in the backyard.
