  • Veronica Youngblood, a woman from McLean, Virginia, received a recommended sentence of 78 years in prison for murdering her two daughters in 2018.
  • Youngblood killed her daughters, 15-year-old Sharon and 5-year-old Brooklynn, to spite her ex-husband for planning to move to Missouri with their youngest daughter.
  • Prosecutors said Youngblood was selfish, vengeful, and calculated, and she had purchased the gun used to kill her daughters nine days before the shooting.

A Virginia woman named Veronica Youngblood, age 37, has been recommended to serve 78 years in prison by a jury for the murder of her two daughters. Youngblood was convicted on two counts each of first-degree murder and felony firearm use after she shot and killed her daughters, 15-year-old Sharon and 5-year-old Brooklynn, on August 5, 2018, in McLean, Virginia. Sharon managed to call 911 before dying and told authorities that her mother shot her.

Meanwhile, Youngblood called her ex-husband Ron Youngblood and left a message saying she shot their children and that she hated him.

During the trial, prosecutors argued that Youngblood killed her children to get back at her ex-husband for planning to move to Missouri with their youngest daughter. They also described Youngblood as spiteful, selfish, vengeful, and calculated.

She had purchased the gun she used to kill her daughters nine days before the shooting and gave them sleeping pill gummies before murdering them.

Youngblood pleaded not guilty and claimed insanity, stating that she had been physically and sexually abused growing up. She also said she went into sex work to care for her first daughter, Sharon, and that she met Ron through sex work.

However, the jury found her guilty and recommended a sentence of 78 years in prison.

Commonwealth Attorney Steve Descano expressed his condolences to the family of the deceased daughters and said, “This case is a terrible tragedy, and I hope today’s verdict brings a measure of healing for the family.” Youngblood is set to serve her sentence in prison.

    That punishment was NOT near severe enough! With the justice systems set up as they are today, she could be out in maybe less than 10 years for good behavior &/or etc! Without the possibility of parol should be in ANY/ALL like cases!
