(Scroll down for video) Two children were left traumatized after seeing their mother killing their father before she was carried away in handcuffs.

45-year-old Kandee Weyland of Maine, was charged with murder and violating a protection order after stabbing her ex-husband, 42-year-old Scott Weyland.

The incident occurred outside his mother's home on Milton Mills Road, where Scott lived with his children since they separated.

Court documents show that Scott and Kandee Weyland had filed a petition for orders of protection against each other 10 months ago.

The petitions were granted and the couple was supposed to stay away from each other.

However, after the couple’s divorce was finalized last week, Kandee was upset that her former husband was granted full custody of the children.

She confronted him outside his mother’s home and stabbed him.

Scott’s mother, who is a former Sanford police officer, said the couple’s children, a boy and a girl who are 7 and 11-years-old, saw it all. The boy called 911.

Scott's mother said that the children were so affected by witnessing their father dying that they will need counseling.
