A Kansas City, Kan., woman says she's struggling to raise her three young grandsons who saw their father shoot their mother to death and then kill himself.

Forty-year-old Bridget Mitchell says she's determined to keep the 2-, 3- and 4-year-old boys together as they struggle to make ends meet.

Mitchell's 24-year-old daughter, Alyshia Alexander, was killed March 13 by her estranged husband, Jedidiah Alexander. He shot her in her car while the boys were in the back seat and then shot himself.

Mitchell lost her job because of the time she has to devote to the boys. She has them in counseling and is using legal aid to get guardianship of her grandsons.
