An Oklahoma mother is in police custody after allegedly fatally shooting her 16-year-old daughter and 18-year-old son in the head while they slept, RadarOnline.com has learned.

According to an affidavit from the Okmulgee County Sheriff's office, Amy Hall, 38, admitted she tried to murder her 14-year-old daughter as well, but failed because the teen escaped to the bathroom and began to cry.

When police arrived at the family's Okmulgee County home, they found Hall's son, Kayson Toliver, dead. Her daughter, Kloee Toliver was still conscious and was therefore immediately transported to the hospital — but she was declared brain dead later that day.

Kloee remained on life support until her organs were removed and donated. In the end, she saved the lives of eight people.

Her youngest sibling, thee teen who survived, reportedly told her mother that everything was "okay," before leaving the bathroom and taking the gun away from her.

Though she was not harmed by her crazed mother, she was sent to the hospital for treatment and released hours later.

The county sheriff's office revealed Hall is being held without bail on charges of first degree murder. She told police that she had intended to kill herself after murdering her children, but her plan was interrupted when her youngest daughter took her gun.

After allegedly killing her two other children, Hall said she got into her car and drove 100 miles, but eventually stopped.

Her motive for the murders is still uncertain, though Hall wrote in the affidavit that "some part "of her was trying to protect her children from who she believed was an abusive father.

As Radar has learned, Hall and her ex were previously tangled up in a two-year custody battle over their three children. Last month, she filed an emergency order asking for temporary sole custody of the kids — before attempting to kill them all. In 2016, her ex claimed Hall was mentally unstable and was psychologically abusive to the children.
