TAMPA - The New Tampa mother accused of shooting her two teenaged children because they were "mouthy" was previously accused by her daughter of child abuse more than two months ago, according to a police report released Monday.
Calyx Schenecker told investigators she said something she "should not have" to her mother Julie Schenecker, as the two were leaving a Publix on November 2nd, 2010, and that he mom responded by hitting her with an open hand for about 30 seconds. She struck her one to three more times after they got to their neighborhood, the report states.
Calyx said her face was red after being hit, but that she didn't suffer any injuries. She told an investigators that she had been in counseling for three weeks prior to the incident for verbal abuse towards her mother.
She also claimed her mom had hit her in the mouth about a month before, causing her mouth to bleed, but she never said anything about it. Calyx also said her mother had "never hit like this before", the report states.
Julie admitted to popping her daughter in the mouth, but investigators found no evidence of a criminal act and she was never charged. State Department of Children and Families spokesman Terry Field said his agency also investigated the incident -- and found that the overall risk to the children was low.
Schenecker's husband, Parker, told investigators his wife had never hit their daughter before the two incidents. The report also said the family was in counseling.
The agency took no action on the case.
About a week later Schenecker got into a car accident and and showed signs of being impaired, according to a Florida Highway Patrol report.
She was driving on Fowler Avenue when she failed to observe a car slowing down ahead of her, and she drove into the vehicle's attached trailer, the report states. The trooper investigating the accident said Schenecker had dilated pupils and 'mush-mouthed speech'. Schenecker was then rushed to the hospital before any further field sobriety tests could be performed.
When the trooper investigating went to University Community Hospital to get a blood sample, she had already been released from the hospital.
Schenecker was cited for careless driving for that accident.
