OVIEDO, Fla. -

A mother charged with shooting and killing her daughter was indicted by a grand jury on murder charges Thursday.

Prosecutors say Sujatha Guduru shot and killed her 17-year-old daughter Chetana inside the family's Oviedo home last month. Police say she then tried to take her own life, but survived.

Investigators say Guduru decided to kill her daughter because she didn't believe there would be anyone to take care of her after she committed suicide.

Guduru's lawyer says his client has suffered from years of mental problems, including hospitalizations.

Guduru is currently being held in the Seminole County jail.
