The audio recordings give a clearer picture of the mental state Schenecker was in at the time of her arrest.

Detective: We want to find out what happened yesterday, what happened last night, what happened this morning, from you, yourself.

Schenecker: Yeah. Are my kids coming later?

Detective: I'm sorry?

Schenecker: Are my kids coming later?

Detective: We'll talk about all that.

Schenecker told detectives that she had been in bed for the past eight days, and had drank several glass of beer and wine the night before.

Detective: You take a lot of medications right?

Schenecker: Oh my god. 10 or 12.

Detective: 10 or 12 meds?

Schenecker says she had picked up her son Beau from soccer practice that day then turned around and had to pick up her daughter Calyx from track practice.

Schenecker: Are you leaving the kids where they lay?

During the interview, detectives kept asking Schenecker if she was ok. She said she was shaky telling them she didn't want to go to court.

"First of all, I want to get out of here," she says.

Schenecker's trial is expected to begin later this month.
