Tears in a Monmouth County courtroom as a mother admitted stabbing her son to death before turning the knife on herself.

Kathlene DeMichele will face up to 30 years in prison with no chance for parole when she's sentenced on May 2.

The 46-year-old cried as she told the judge she had intended to kill her 9-year-old son, Cha

rles, in their Manasquan apartment last March.

DeMichele's lawyer claims his client was clinically depressed and tried to take her own life.
