PALM BEACH COUNTY, FL (WFLX) - Accused of two murders: Amy Kern faces a judge and her charges Tuesday.

She's already confessed to police to killing her grandmother and her aunt's boyfriend.

The details of the crime she's accused of are now public: Some of them too gory to broadcast. We're also getting a better idea of her mental state.

The police report details Saturday's murders in it. Kern confesses to driving to her father's house planning to kill him.

In the report, Kern also says, she thought, she was Jesus.

When questioned about her grandmother's murder, she said: "She wanted to kill her because she had a bad feeling about her all of her life."

Meanwhile, police release the 9-1-1 call made at the time of her grandmother's murder.

911: "What kind of noise do you think you heard?"

Neighbor: "A couple of loud bangs. I mean, I don't know what a gun sounds like. But, then, I just went over to just take a peek, and the sliding glass door is shattered. And I saw somebody who was pushing against it, and they got inside."

Kern, we are told, is under psychiatric watch at the county jail. She's charged with two counts of murder and burglary among other things.

Her fiancee says that this weekend's shooting spree hints at Kern's "mental instability".
