ORANGEBURG, S.C. -- A South Carolina mother faces a possible life sentence after admitting she killed her two young sons, before staging a watery car crash scene.

Shaquan Duley (shah-KWAHN' DOO'-lee) is expected to learn her fate Friday in Orangeburg.

Duley pleaded guilty earlier this month to two charges of murder in the deaths of her sons, 2-year-old Devean and 18-month-old Ja'van. The 30-year-old mother admitted suffocating the boys and staging a car crash at a river outside of town.

Her attorney has said Duley tried to kill herself the night of her sons' deaths and was depressed after a fight with relatives over her parenting abilities.

Duley made no deal with prosecutors. She faces between 30 years and life in prison.
