GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) -- The mystery of why a Greensboro woman killed two of her sons and three other children in her care before taking her own life has deepened after the discovery of two checks worth a total of $10,600 written to her surviving 21-year-old daughter just before she went on her shooting spree.

The News & Record of Greensboro reports that the checks were made public in court records recently released as Mary Ann Holder's $13,310 estate was settled in Guilford County.

Also on the day before the killings, Holder wrote a $10,000 check to the wife of her former boyfriend.

Holder's ex-husband says she didn't have the money to cover the checks and it only makes it harder to figure out why she killed five children.
