Schenecker returns to court after outburst

TAMPA, FL (WFLA) - It’s back to court Monday morning for the mom on trial for shooting her two teenagers for being “mouthy”.

Julie Schenecker’s defense attorneys will continue trying to convince jurors this week she was out of her mind when she shot her children, Calyx, 16, and Beau, 13.

The judge called an emergency break Friday after Schenecker had an outburst during testimony from her former psychiatrist Demian Obregon.  He was answering questions about Schenecker's medications and her use of alcohol.

Suddenly Schenecker yelled, "Doc, you told me I could have two drinks a day, and two oxys a day!"

The judge scolded Schenecker and warned her she would be restrained if it happened again.

Several psychiatrists treated Schenecker over the years as she traveled the world with her military family.  The defense could call some of her other doctors to the stand.  Her ex-husband, Parker Schenecker, could also be called back up to testify.

The trial resumes Monday at 8:30 a.m. You can watch a live stream by clicking here.
