FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) - Amber Pasztor will spend the rest of her life behind bars.

Pasztor was sentenced to 65 years in prison Monday in Allen County Superior Court.

She pleaded guilty but mentally ill in the death of her neighbor Frank Macomber, 66, in 2016.

That's the same plea she took in the murders of two children Lillian Hernandez, 7, and Rene Pasztor, 6, last year in an Elkhart County court.

Pasztor killed Macomber in September 2016, then stoll his car and abducted her two children, prompting an AMBER Alert.

She was sentenced to 130 years in prison for her children's murders.

Monday's sentence means she will spend 195 years behind bars.
