(Scroll down for video) Twin sisters admitted that they killed their mother after a fight broke out over getting up late in the morning, police in Georgia said.
Rockdale County Police said that the Tasimyah and Jasmiyah Whitehead, were 16 years old at the time of the incident.
Now, they were both sentenced to serve 30 years in prison after confessing to killing their mother at home one morning, before they went to school.
The twins told investigators that the fight started in the kitchen of their home after they woke up late for school. The mother, Jarmecca Whitehead, told them that they cannot do whatever they want and that they have to live by the rules.
The twins said that their mother began to threaten them with a pot from the stove by waving it around in an attempt to hit them.
The twins wrestled the pot away from her and the mother grabbed a knife before she dropped it on the floor. One of the girls then took a vase and broke it over her mother’s head.
The mother bit one of the girls in the chest, and that is when she was stabbed numerous times. The girl dragged their mother to the bathtub, filled it with water and let her die.
After she was dead, the twins left for school. When they came home, they called the police.
