SANTA ANA, Calif. » A mother charged with killing her two children has asked a California judge for the death penalty.

Forty-two-year-old Marilyn Edge appeared by video today in Orange County Superior Court to be arraigned on two counts of murder following her arrest over the weekend.

Judge Craig Robison asked Edge if she wanted her arraignment postponed to Oct. 25, and she twice said she would agree to that if the judge promised her the death penalty.

The judge postponed the arraignment.

A phone call by The Associated Press for comment from Edge's public defender was not immediately returned.

Edge was involved in a custody dispute and had been ordered to return her son and daughter to their father in Georgia. They were found dead in a Santa Ana hotel room on Saturday.

She's obviously positioning herself for better accommodations and nothing more. Maybe a peaceful hospital to watch over her, something like that. I say Request Denied, lock her with the masses and let her suffer. If she really wants to die, she will kill herself.
